We know our products are used in an environment that is very precious.
Our goal is to continuously improve the impact of our business on the environment. Our environmental management system ensures our print plant uses its own natural source of heating and cooling, avoiding the use of any fossil fuels and so reducing our production CO2 footprint.
Our UV inks are environmentally friendly compared to conventional inks by the complete absence of mineral oil components, which are replaced by vegetable oils.
Our certified waste stream management ensures we recycle as much as possible. We have 100% re-use of the major raw materials including: plastics, foil, paper and cardboard.
‘It is my opinion that we, as market leader, are morally obliged to tackle plastic consumption. One of the objectives of Floramedia is to no longer offer any material based on newly mined fossil raw materials by 2030. For this we have both the knowledge and the will.’

Our Green White Paper
As the industry leader in print for the horticultural sector, Floramedia expects the market to switch to more sustainable plant label materials within the next 10 years. By collaborating with our competitors and supply chain partners, we can achieve greater environmental gains throughout the supply chain quicker.
Joris Verweij, CEO of Floramedia: “Choosing a suitable label material is harder than you might think. By providing clear and transparent information, we help our customers secure the best results – including for the environment.”
We can now offer a suitable, more sustainable solution for every type of label. Our newest substrate FlorAqua is a renewable and recyclable label cardboard with a special varnish layer developed by Floramedia. We have two handy tools to guide your decisions; the carbon Footprint Calculator and the Sustainable Selection Guide.
To reduce our waste, we work smarter. For example, we use smart sheet combinations, laying out our print sheets as efficiently as possible to minimise waste.
We operate very strict separation of our waste streams alongside recycling, keeping the environmental impact as low as possible.
We carry FSCⓇ, ISO 9001 and 14001 certificates.
