Impact and Commitment

IMPACT AND COMMITMENt

DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION, FAIR LABOUR AND PHILANTHROPY

Arena Flowers provide equal opportunity for all and are committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals of ending poverty, hunger and achieving gender equality throughout the world. They have also adopted the Ethical Trading Initiative code of conduct, and every supplier they work with has to meet their codes of conduct as a minimum standard. All of their suppliers and growers are audited on their equality of pay. Importantly they have achieved carbon neutrality for their entire workforce through their commitment to tree planting and optimised supply chains.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY, MINIMAL WASTE, REDUCED WATER USAGE AND CO2 REDUCTION

Arena Flowers only sources from farms that accept the principles of sustainability outlined in their code of conduct, including the use of wetland water filtration schemes and greywater sourcing. They are also taking steps to measure and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, and have achieved their goal of carbon neutrality by the end of 2020 a full twelve months ahead of schedule.
Arena Flowers have consolidated their freight and shipping to reduce their footprint, and started to transition their vehicles to electric-only. They moved their UK premises to an EPC A-rated facility to harvest greywater, remove the need for oil and switch to sustainably-sourced woodchip pellets to power and heat the premises. They train their staff to save energy, and replace their equipment with higher energy-efficient machines.
To minimise their water use, Arena Flowers have partnered with toilettwinning.org, and they encourage every team member to consider water as an important resource. They have reduced their water consumption each month by 12% in the past year, and they are working to double that reduction by the end of 2020, becoming the most water-efficient flower business in the world.

FAIRTRADE, FOREST CONSERVATION AND CONSCIOUS DESIGN

Arena Flowers is committed to being the most ethical florist in business, and driving the standards in the sector. 100% of their products are Fairtrade where they can be, and they plant a tree for every single order placed with them to help with reforestation projects in Haiti, Madagascar and Mozambique. Their supply partners in Kenya are also Fairtrade, and their partners and growers in the Netherlands and the UK are audited through GlobalGap to help them meet Arena’s codes of conduct. Their volume of Fairtrade products has increased by almost 300% in the past two years, and they are also certified by the Non-GMO Project and the Rainforest Alliance.
They also supply locally-sourced seeds with British sourced products to help customers and recipients better understand the principles of growing flowers and appreciate their beauty.
Every single stem can be traced back to the farm it was grown on and the day it was harvested meaning that the origins of every bouquet are known to be aligned to the Arena ethical commitment.

COMPOSTABLE, RECYCLABLE PACKAGING AND NO SINGLE-USE PLASTIC

All of the packaging Arena Flowers use is compostable and all single-use plastic has been removed from their operations.
