The MPS Group supports horticultural entrepreneurs worldwide in their efforts to operate more sustainably.
MPS is committed to making the global horticulture sector more sustainable. We achieve this by making the sustainability efforts of horticultural companies transparent, measurable and demonstrable. For that purpose, we develop and manage a range of innovative certification standards and on- and offline tools. These certificates ensure that sustainability in the horticulture sector is increasingly becoming an integral part of the day-to-day business activities. MPS standards are internationally recognised and at the cutting edge of the horticulture industry. These standards not only concern the environment however, MPS also promotes sustainability with certificates for quality assurance and social aspects. In doing so, we offer the sector tools for the effective implementation of corporate sustainability.
MPS-ECAS carries out independent audits and assigns certificates with relevance to the horticulture sector to all links in the chain. In doing so, we actively contribute to making the horticulture sector more sustainable worldwide.

MPS has a board consisting of six people. The main objective of MPS is to develop and promote sustainable and socially responsible entrepreneurship (CSR) within the sector, as well as to improve the image of the horticulture sector. The board sets the policy to achieve these goals and is responsible for monitoring the continuity of the organisation. The main stakeholders sit on the Board; they also influence the content and implementation of the MPS standards.
The Board members are:
The Council of Experts (CvD) is the advisory body of the MPS board with regard to the content and operation of the MPS certification standards. It ensures that the standards are aligned with daily practice. Decisions taken by the CvD are ratified by the Board.
The CvD has a say in the development and management, policy and requirements with regard to the content and functioning of the MPS standards. This is understood to mean: all activities that influence the certification and reliability of the MPS standards (drafting of requirements and interpretation (Audit Manual, Conflict of Interest, requirements for certification bodies, sanctions policy)). The members of the CvD also create public support for the acceptance of MPS certification standards.
The members of the CvD are:
MPS has the ambition to contribute to making the global horticulture sector more sustainable, for example by reducing the environmental impact of crop protection products, among other things, chain-wide.
FSI‘s international sustainability network is growing rapidly, and so are other (national) sustainability initiatives such as IMVO, in which the government plays a prominent role. More and more partners throughout the horticulture chain are joining in because they see that together they can move forward. MPS supports the sector’s ambition through knowledge and tools.
Council of Experts MPS-ECAS
It is of great importance for MPS-ECAS to be able to do its work independently, impartially and objectively. To realise and monitor this, MPS-ECAS has established the Board of Experts (CvD). The CvD monitors the independence and impartiality of the certification process for which ECAS BV is responsible. For a list of members of the CvD, please visit the MPS-ECAS website.
