Why Hold Public Consultations?

As part of our commitment to providing transparency and credibility, we invite CGF members and external stakeholders to participate in public consultations of benchmarking criteria before their launch. We also host public consultations during the benchmarking process for applicants. 

Open Public Consultations

The Sustainable Supply Chain Initiative (SSCI) is currently inviting stakeholder consultation for Florverde® Sustainable Flowers (FSF), as it advances to the final stages in the SSCI Benchmark process. Florverde’s FSF Scheme is 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.
