Our Commitment to Sustainability

Simply Sustainable. Always Effective.

This is not just a tagline, these are words that drive our business and our everyday decisions; throughout every level of our organization. We pride ourselves in supplying products that are environmentally sound and set us apart from the ever-growing negative paradigm of chemical manufacturers.

BioSafe Systems’ Ten Sustainability Initiatives

The idea is simple...

Sustainability is not the easiest of paths for products; the increased regulations, the additional testing and research and the added agencies involved in the certification process makes it a more difficult process, but we believe it is the right path and we’ve been doing it well before “sustainability” was a buzzword. It’s not a popularity contest, or a sales pitch; sustainability is a deliberate focus on conserving resources and preserving both economic and social values. Our history of commitment to sustainable practices makes us proud, but we’re also well prepared to continue as we look forward to the future.

BioSafe Systems’ products are certified sustainable by the world’s foremost authorities on organic practices, such as OMRI and MPS and a description of these agencies are below.

The standard in organic certification

OMRI supports organic integrity by developing clear information and guidance about materials, so that producers know which products are appropriate for organic operations. OMRI is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides an independent review of products, such as fertilizers, pest controls, livestock health care products, and numerous other inputs that are intended for use in certified organic production and processing. When companies apply, OMRI reviews their products against the organic standards. Acceptable products are OMRI Listed® and appear on the OMRI Products List© or OMRI Canada Products List©. OMRI also provides technical support and training for professionals in the organic industry.

MPS Certification

The MPS certification is more than just a certificate. It is a unique world standard and works as a benchmark in demonstrating to what extent our products are environmentally friendly. The MPS Certification is granted to assure our commitment to a minimal environmental burden.

The MPS-Product Proof is an extension of this guarantee; it is a rating system based on a culmination of international legislation per country and retailer compiled and analyzed for a globalized stamp of certification of sustainability measures. The following BioSafe products are rated White, Orange and Green, the highest ratings in the scale. This color code corresponds to a numbered-ranking system which allows the user to make quantified product-use choices in order to keep their environmental impact low and overall MPS certification in good standing.

Social responsibility and commitment to safety in manufacturing

BioSafe Systems not only manufactures products that are environmentally responsible, but we try to manufacture them in responsible ways as well. We understand that every choice that we make creates a footprint. Take for example the distances we drive to deliver our products, although there is a fiscal benefit to manufacturing closer to our customers, we also look towards our commitment to our mission while making decisions to open new facilities. We don’t always look at our balance sheet when making these decisions, however. For example, our purchasing department has the authority to buy less and pay more, if it means less waste or overall carbon impact. We’ve also committed to using more technology and reducing the amount of paper we use corporate-wide by 50% over the next 3 years.

Simply Sustainable. Always Effective.

BioSafe Systems not only strives to manufacture and sell effective algae and disease control products but also advocates a preventative approach to using these products. BioSecurity is the elimination and prevention of disease pressures in an environment, thereby maintaining a healthy growing area. This is the best way to control losses caused by microbial disease organisms and is the single most effective way to increase profits.
