The Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together members of the international floriculture supply-chain. FSI members collaborate to improve practices and drive positive change towards the sustainable production and trade of flowers and plants.
A total of 14 international voluntary sustainable standards and schemes make up the FSI Basket. They are fully transparent, comparable and by way of independent benchmarking, comply with basic social and/or environmental requirements.
