This logo confirms that a product meets HORTICERT’s requirements for sustainability, supply chain traceability and CO2 footprint calculation. The logo can be placed on product packaging or delivery documents.


  • The claim “Certified Substrates” can be complemented on product packaging by the percentage of HORTICERT-certified raw materials in the final substrate or potting soil.
  • In an additional claim, it is possible to indicate the greenhouse gas savings of the product in comparison with a peat-based reference product.
  • Alongside the logo, a QR code can be placed on the product packaging. By scanning the QR code, end consumers can obtain further information on the product, for example on the origin and properties of the raw materials or the methodology for calculating the greenhouse gas emissions.
