Jeroen Oudheusen

Executive Officer at Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) 

Jeroen Oudheusden has been working in the floriculture sector for the last 25 years after graduating on Business Management from the University in Amsterdam. He held various management positions at the Flower Auctions in the Netherlands. During the last 8 years he has been an independent consultant in the field of process improvements and sustainability. He has been leading the FSI initiative from the start in 2013, helping the initiative grow, promoting and implementing sustainable practices. On behalf of the Dutch Government, he also chaired the formation of the Dutch Responsible Business Conduct agreement on adhering to OECD guidelines (http://mneguidelines.oecd.org/) and UN Guiding Principles (https://www.business-humanrights.org/en/un-guiding-principles) and currently acts as program manager for the implementation.

FSI members collaborate to improve practices and drive positive change in the sustainable production and trade of flowers and plants.
The Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together members of the international floriculture supply-chain. FSI members collaborate to improve practices and drive positive change in the sustainable production and trade of flowers and plants. To move towards a mainstream sustainable floriculture sector, it is key to develop a shared vision, reverse the fragmentation of standards and thus inefficiencies, and to create a structure where current and future sustainability issues can be tackled on a sector level. FSI anticipates that 90% of the traded flowers and plants will originate from responsible sources and be recognised as mainstream sustainable commodities by 2020. The flowers and plants supply chain will have integrated sustainable development criteria and FSI members will have implemented responsible sourcing and best practices on the identified key topics.
