Celebrating World Environment Day everyday

One of the graphic pieces we
share on social media

Climate change does concern us all. Florverde® Sustainable Flowers, its certified farms and their partners are committed to our planet and its wildlife.

The Florverde® certification scheme works everyday to protect the environment in a number of ways: it encourages the change to sustainable production practices from local certified farms to the world; work together with allies to spread sustainability worldwide and drive people to be sustainable development change agents.

Making a difference with people: Florverde® thinks it really matters when comes to be a sustainable agent. Certified farms teach their employees how to make a difference everyday by education programs in recycling, rainwater reservoirs and preservation of natural or artificial wetlands and introducing them to the wildlife, which lives around the farms -and depends on it to survive. Also works with communities online thanks to its social networks to raise awareness about environment, inviting them to think before buying, look for the sustainable label on products they care about what’s behind their production.

Calling to action about the importance of the environment: we drive the change, spreading programs and actions in benefit of environmental protection. Florverde Farms Program helps certified farms to monitor their environmental performance through Performance Floriculture Indicators that monitor water usage, rainwater recycling, worker’s health and many other key performance indicators, which means using best practices for the production and our planet with less resources.

Partnerships that make a difference: we’ve been working together with GLOBALG.A.P since 2008, the most important and recognized certification worldwide that promotes good agricultural practices, in this case, in flowers and ornamentals production. Both standards are equivalent and mutually accepted by all trading partners. This benchmark means Florverde® meets all GLOBALG.A.P requirements for the flowers and ornamentals scope and enables growers to receive both certifications in one single audit.

Since November 7 2014, Florverde and Rainforest Alliance Certified share a common ground to benefit certified farms that want to adopt sustainable agricultural practices.
