In January, Selecta one was accepted as a new member at the FSI General Assembly 2022. As a member of FSI, Selecta supports the overarching FSI goal of a " transparent and responsible supply chain" in 2025.

- 90% responsibly produced and traded volumes ambition broadened to include new environmental and social aspects;
- A reduction of the carbon footprint for selected products by 2025;
- A Reduction of the living wage gap of workers at farm level by 2025;
- Reporting on progress and integrate due dilligence reporting by 2025.
Sustainability is part of Selecta's corporate goals. Selecta one wants to understand the impact of its actions and products on the environment, people and society and act as an example for sustainable improvements. The company hopes that the FSI network will help to jointly develop solutions for the change towards more sustainability at Selecta one. The fact that the breeder takes responsibility for people and the environment very seriously is shown by the new informative website with a sub-page on sustainability at Selecta one: selecta-one.com/en/sustainability.
FSI started in 2013 as a market-driven initiative that brought together international floriculture stakeholders to jointly advance sustainable production and trade. By 2020, FSI and its members have achieved common milestones in responsible production and trade, innovation, and best practices. Building on these achievements, FSI 2025 will promote transparency and responsibility in the ornamental supply chain through responsible production and trade, responsible behavior, and integrated reporting.
