Containing Greens is a company which grow up kales all year round in Arctic climates by using waste heat from server halls. The plants grow vertically directly in water, enabling more efficient cultivation and a longer harvest due to fewer bacteria. In a context of low self-sufficiency in the northern regions, long transports for food, high energy consumption and waste heat from the industries, the company aims at creating sustainable cultivation that benefit directly to the local populations.

Containing Greens is based in Luleå, Sweden, and is an AEC member since February 2023.
