Digital environmental registration and certification
Together we grow a green future
Our growers work hard to provide beautiful, high-quality products that make consumers happy. Flowers and plants that are grown with respect for people and the environment. As a sector, we want to show that our products are all right.
At the same time, we are closely monitored by environmental organisations and market participants such as retailers, and expect stricter environmental laws and regulations to come into force. We want to stay ahead of this by showing, as a sector, that our products are fully compliant. One of the ways we can do this is to encourage and help our growers to become certified.
News: Royal FloraHolland presents a new approach to digital environmental registration and certification
Royal FloraHolland is switching to a new approach to digital environmental registration and certification. The new approach is aimed at encouragement, by guiding growers and making participation easier instead of working with sanctions in the form of fines and temporary exclusion from the marketplace.
Society demands sustainable production and products. Digital environmental registration and certification help us make the process of becoming more sustainable visible.
Watch the explanation in the animation below:
In the MPS-ABC registration environment you perform the digital environmental registration. The CB MPS-ECAS carries out an audit of this. Based on the total score, your company will receive an MPS qualification: A+, A, B or C and corresponding certificate.
In addition to MPS-ABC, you can also obtain the MPS-GAP certificate, where GAP stands for "Good Agricultural Practices". With the combination of MPS-ABC and MPS-GAP, you fully meet the FSI criteria.
From registration to certification via MPS-ABC. How do you start?
After the quotation has been approved, the CI of your choice will register you with GLOBALG.A.P. for the IDA module. After this you can then start digital environmental registration at GreenlinQdata.
After 6 months of digital environmental registration and a successful audit by the CB of your choice, you will receive the environmental certificate. Do you already have a GLOBALG.A.P. IFA FO certificate? Then you can have an audit and certification for the IDA module after 3 months of digital environmental registration.
You are not obliged to have an audit carried out after 6 or 3 months of digital environmental registration. You can also choose to have the audit carried out later (up to 12 months). This means that you will also pay the audit costs at a later date. Do you take into account the planning of the audit with the deadline set by Royal FloraHolland for environmental certification?
Germany, Belgium, Italy and Spain
MPS is available as well as the combination GreenlinQdata/ GLOBALG.A.P. In Germany the combination AKOlogic/GLOBALG.A.P. is also available. You'll find more information and an explanation of how to get started on our website, under the heading 'GLOBALG.A.P.' and 'MPS'.

In addition to MPS, digital environmental registration and environmental certification is also possible in Israel through GLOBALG.A.P. by means of the two local digital registration tools AKOLogic and FarmManager.
Kenya and Colombia
In Kenya and Colombia, KFC and Florverde are the alternative to MPS.
In Ethiopia, only MPS meets all requirements. EHPEA is still working on linking digital environmental registration to the environmental certificate.
In other countries, only MPS is currently available. Growers in these countries can therefore turn to MPS for digital environmental registration and environmental certification.
