Harvest London, a UK-based vertical farming company Based on the B Impact assessment, Harvest London earned an overall score of 104.7. The median score for ordinary businesses who complete the assessment is currently 50.9. 

Harvest London is a vertical farming company seeking to transform our unsustainable food system. Food production contributes around a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, increasingly not just from farms themselves, but in activities like transport and processing. Agriculture is also a major contributor to waterway pollution, deforestation and soil degradation. The demand for fresh produce of all types, from across the globe, year-round, will only grow - the cosmopolitan tastes of consumers in developed countries impact the whole world. Harvest London is a specialist in using controlled environment technology to grow great-tasting food, right next to the final consumer.
