Sustainable development

Growing with respect for the resource

For many years, sustainable peatland management and the protection of ecosystems such as its sphagnum peat moss harvesting sites have been firm commitments at Premier Tech Horticulture.

To preserve the vitality of those areas for many generations still, Premier Tech Horticulture actively participates in the restoration of peat bogs. Even when knowledge was limited regarding the sustainability of resources, Premier Tech Horticulture promoted university research in that field. Some 15 years after its first large-scale peat bog restoration project, the company still continues its efforts, and this, all over Canada. Since it cares about making knowledge progress, Premier Tech Horticulture always devotes a part of its peat bogs to various research projects.

Those efforts, combined with the experience acquired over the years, allow Premier Tech Horticulture to offer products with a small ecological footprint.

 

Certifications

For Premier Tech Horticulture, obtaining certifications is a validation of the methods, technologies and products developed. For customers, certifications issued by independent organizations represent a guarantee of quality and performance. For instance, obtaining the VeriFlora® Certified Peatland Products certification from Scientific Certification Systems, in 2010, proves the excellence of the company’s practices regarding sustainable development in the field of horticulture. The requirements of that certification for responsible peatland management regard every aspect of the production: from field preparation before harvesting to peat bog restoration, including product quality control and team members’ work conditions.
