Barometer Sustainable Florist

With the ‘Barometer Sustainable Florist’, a florist shows that he is sustainable. He does this through a more sustainable business management and a purchase of more sustainable flowers and plants.

The certification scheme was created in collaboration with environmental organizations, umbrella organizations, NGOs, industry-specific research agencies, florists, growers, auction and wholesale.

Purchasing and management

Depending on the purchase percentage of more sustainable flowers and plants and the number of points achieved on the business, the floristry is certified on the bronze, silver or gold level of the Barometer.

In the case of more sustainable purchasing, the fixed purchase percentages are more sustainable flowers and plants:

  • MPS-A
  • Eco-label
  • Organic / EKO
  • Max Havelaar / Fair Trade
  • Kenya Flower Council Silver Standard
  • EHPEA Silver Level
  • Florverde Sustainable Flowers


In more sustainable business operations, the requirements include the following themes:

  • waste
  • electricity
  • hygiene and cleaning products
  • gas and water
  • transport
