Sustainable trade is the new norm. And certification is the means to determine sustainable trade. We have the ambition to sell 90% of our flowers and plants sustainably by 2020.
FleuraMetz has signed up to the FSI convention (Floriculture Sustainability Initiative 2020), together with 45 other parties in the ornamental plant sector. With this, FleuraMetz will focus on sustainable flowers and plants, so that every florist knows how the product was grown or made. This means that FleuraMetz expects their own suppliers also to be certified according to the FSI rules.
The importance of certification is considerable, because this is the only way to establish sustainable trade. It ensures transparency and shows that legislation and regulations are complied with. This is why FleuraMetz has signed the FSI convention. Together we keep the ornamental sector green. Read more about FSI here or ask your supplier for sustainable products.
FleuraMetz is also a Fairtrade-certified wholesaler. This means that we can buy and sell Fairtrade flowers. Ask your supplier for Fairtrade products or discover them in the web shop.
