As a large producer of products from cannabis and industrial hemp - the Worlds most CO2-absorbing plant – our company is not simply striving to be CO2-neutral - we are already CO2-negative and have been for years already.
We use a large amount of renewable energy from water and solar, replenish the soil without fertilizer, use highly effective LEDs over HPS lamps, packaging made from ROHS-produced wood, paper from recycled paper etc. Read more details about it here.
Since 2018, we have been documenting, improving and certifying our production processes by GMP and ISO 22716 and are now finalizing ISO 9001:2015.
Our products are not just organic and vegan. Anyone can claim that and add a non-certified logo on their products. And unfortunately, many choose to do so as it doesn't come with any accreditation costs.
Our products are certified organic by The Vegan Association in the U.K. and certified organic by COSMOS ORGANIC in Germany, which are the highest standards possible in Europe, if not the World. Both associations have a long legacy as leaders of product certifications and continue to increase the bar for certified products and control the quality of certified products by frequent inspection visits etc.
In Denmark, all future medical cannabis products from Formula Swiss Medic Ltd. will be certified as medical devices and certified ISO 13485:2016.
We are very proud of our achievements to date. It takes time, patience manpower and requires substantial financial investment in product development, quality improvement, and certifications via external consultants.
However, we can do better and should do anything possible to reduce our footprint on the Planet to minimize climate change and the negative impacts on the fragile ecosystem.
We will take immediate action now and not in 5 or 10 years from now.
Before the end of 2021, we promise to implement the following changes:
We will redesign and reprint all product labels for all 350+ products, including local language variations in Spanish, Portuguese and Norwegian, in eco-friendly material that meet medical-grade quality standards.
We will redesign and reprint all product packaging and inserts for all products produced by ROHS-wood only.
We will completely stop using plastic containers for any product, safely stored in glass or aluminium containers.
We will completely stop using plastic lids for containers, where the cover can be replaced with glass or aluminium.
We will use shrink-plastic protective sleeves for our products using biodegradable material only.
We will update you on our developments and present more pledges next month.
