De Groene Grachten: the starting point for sustainable retrofitting
De Groene Grachten (The Green Canals) makes historic buildings and areas more sustainable with the mission: ‘If it is possible here, it is possible everywhere’.
De Groene Grachten started with making six Amsterdam canal houses more sustainable, but is now active for many property owners, companies and governments in The Netherlands and abroad. In order to grow further, we digitized the knowledge and expertise in a newly developed central knowledge database and made this information available for various digital platforms and tools.
Digitization in order to scale up
Pimcore as the accelerator for scaling up
Further growth is now possible
Since its completion in 2020, De Groene Menukaart platform has already been scaled up from 15 to 60 municipalities. And that will grow even further this year. De Groene Grachten has also taken its first steps abroad with De Groene Menukaart. After launching the platform on both the Portuguese and Slovenian markets, the European network will be further expanded this year. Receiving two European Lovie Awards for best platform will definitely help with increasing brand awareness in Europe.
