The Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI) is delighted to announce the opening of a stakeholder consultation for Florverde® Sustainable Flowers (FSF), as it advances to the final stages in the SSCI Benchmark process. Florverde’s FSF Scheme is currently being benchmarked under the SSCI’s Primary Production Scope (Social). 

FSF is an independent social and environmental standard which ensures that flowers certified under this scheme have been responsibly produced. This requires flower growers to adopt measures that will protect and enable worker’s rights, implement best environmental practices, and comply with national regulations. FSF also helps safeguard quality by requiring the proper care and handling of flowers.

This consultation is an important step of the SSCI Benchmarking Process ensures its transparency and robustness by inviting interested stakeholders to review and comment on the assessment carried out by the SSCI and the independent Benchmark Leader.
