Florverde has a set of economic indicators that helps minimize the socio-environmental risk of certified farms, develop organizational skills and creates new markets for these farms.
Florverde Sustainable Flowers works hard to make all the flowers certified with its brand, environmentally sustainable. FSF encourages growers to adopt energy efficient processes and requires them to minimize the use of energy intensive inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides, growers must also conduct preventive maintenance of electric equipment and implement reforestation activities using native species.
We are implementing in certified flower facilities in Colombia, a project created to replace R-22 from flower growers’ cold rooms with natural refrigerants, such as the R-290
The coronavirus has strongly affected the world and the vast majority of economic sectors, where the flower industry is no exception. In the first weeks of the pandemic, sales decreased dramatically, with the added concern of being in one of the most important seasons for the industry: Mother’s Day. However, the sense of responsibility and commitment with the earth and the thousands of workers led to all the necessary measures being taken with great speed to guarantee the stability of all.
