We recognise that our actions as a worldwide organisation affect many people and places. For this reason, we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. We believe our obligation goes well beyond legislative compliance, to a moral obligation to act responsibly in our daily business.
Our goal is to make a positive impact on our employees, customers and communities and to lead through responsible management and applying socially and environmentally responsible practices in all we do.
We are committed to conducting our businesses in an environmentally responsible and proactive manner. Consistent with our commitment to social responsibility, we recognise the environment requires thoughtful stewardship and accountability to preserve it for future generations.
Over the years, we have worked hard to lessen our footprint on the planet. When it comes to the environment, our actions have always been to align ourselves with all local regulatory requirements. We support this promise to environmental stewardship throughout our organisation.
Research and Technology
Our research and technology teams collaborate with our global suppliers to develop our raw materials and their specifications. Our ongoing commitment to the highest production standards includes a commitment to Lean Manufacturing Practices and elimination of waste, which provide us operational efficiencies that benefit our company, customers and the environment.
Floral Foam Products
Our floral foam is based on inert phenolic resin technology, the same chemistry that is used for the handles of kitchen cook ware. Our resin, when made into our cellular floral foam, is fully polymerized and reacted, with only small traces of free acid (much lower than that of cola beverage products), which may be neutralized by adding water.
In 1981, as part of our commitment to being an accountable, socially and environmentally responsible company, we was the first in our industry to eliminate the use of freon from floral foam production. Moreover, we've successfully reduced our volatile organic compound emissions (VOCs) by more than 85 percent over the past 25 years.
Flower Care Products
Our post-harvest products are specially formulated to maintain an optimal environment for cut flowers by adjusting the water pH for maximum uptake, providing a source of energy for the flower, and keeping the flower stems open and free flowing. Imported Products We will only source products from UK and Global suppliers that respects human rights, labour rights and protection of the environment, independent of the state’s ability and/or willingness to fulfil its role in protecting its citizens against human rights abuses.
