We are pleased to share with you that on November 9th 2017, the Executive Director of GLOBALG.AP notified the Technical Secretariat of Florverde Sustainable Flowers of its FSF recognition as a similar scheme (Resembling scheme) for Flowers and Ornamentals.

Under this scheme, the public will be informed that both certification schemes are similar in such a way that with the approval of all requirements of Florverde Sustainable Flowers, in addition to its registration in the GG database, a producer will carry on its certificate* the GGN (GLOBALG.AP Number) and the name of this certification, and can use the name of GLOBALG.AP in business communications and the GGN that identifies the certificate in its final products.
