Elegance Company

2014 SEED Low Carbon Award Winner Sustainable Agriculture Hanoi, Viet Nam

The enterprise promotes organic agriculture at a model farm and provides paid consultancy to farmers regarding sustainable farm design and development of new technologies, connecting farmers and customers. Its system closes agricultural production circles, with technologies reducing the reliance on chemical inputs. 

The closed-loop, zero-waste agricultural system builds on technologies such as solar energy and biomass, organic cultivation and breeding, on-site production of fertiliser and feed, organic disease prevention practices and post-harvest preservation technologies. The system strengthens food security, decreasing the farm’s susceptibility to environmental shock. Renouncing on chemical inputs and mimicking natural processes, it improves water, air and soil quality and increases plant diversity.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

The closed-loop system that the enterprise increases the yield of the land and the selling price of the products. Farms implementing the system thus benefit from a higher income and are less exposed to price volatility and food insecurity.
  • Creating full-time employment for three farmers on the model farm.
  • Providing rural farmers with access to training and capacity building.
  • Making organic products available to 125 families.
  • Reducing communities’ vulnerability to natural disasters. 
  • Removing chemical farming inputs such as pesticides and fertilisers by using organic substitutes to improve soil, water and air quality.
  • Establishing a multi-species agricultural system, increasing ecosystem resilience. 

  • Providing a profit of USD 235 per week for a farmer household due to organic farm produce fetching higher selling prices than non-organic.
  • Increasing the profit per square meter as the enterprise’s model produces higher yields.
