Profile® Products recently earned the renowned Veriflora Responsibly Managed Peatlands designation for its family of Sunterra sphagnum peat products.
The Veriflora Responsibly Managed Peatlands program is the world’s leading certification process for sustainable peat moss cultivation. Certified producers must demonstrate a commitment to ecosystem protection, integrated waste management and support for worker’s rights. Certified companies are audited on an annual basis to ensure consistent quality.
“This certification signals to customers that Sunterra products are harvested in a responsible way, and that our company is an outstanding citizen in the global horticulture community,” said Wes Martin, vice president – horticulture/lawn & garden. “It reinforces our commitment to the industry and defines us as both environmentally and economically sustainable.”
To earn this certification, companies must apply and go through a rigorous audit process with SCS Global Services (SCS). SCS has been providing global leadership in third-party quality, environmental and sustainability verification, certification, auditing, testing and standards development for three decades.
Sunterra is a premium Canadian sphagnum peat moss featuring fibrous blonde peat that is ideal for commercial growers.
