| ENTREVISTA | Conociendo más de la tingua moteada que habita en nuestras fincas floricultoras

La “tingua moteada" es una subespecie endémica de la Cordillera Oriental colombiana registrada en los departamentos de Cundinamarca y Boyacá. Se considera en peligro de extinción (EN) debido a diversas amenazas en sus hábitats naturales. A partir del proyecto Las Aves de las flores de Asocolflores, se identificó su presencia en las fincas floricultoras de la Sabana de Bogotá que cuentan con reservorios artificiales de agua lluvia, proporcionando allí los espejos de agua y algunas coberturas vegetales acuáticas que le sirven a esta ave para alimentarse y sobrevivir.

Why is it important for Florverde to be part of the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative basket of standards?

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.

As explained by Florverde® Sustainable Flowers director, Ximena Franco:

“FSI is an international initiative pursuing the goal that by 2020, 90% of flowers produced and traded are certified as sustainable. For this to happen, FSI has convened different certification schemes that have international accreditation under ISO 17065, to comprise a basket of standards. Florverde® is part of this FSI basket of standards.”
