Metrolina Earns MPS-A Certificate

Jennifer Duffield White
Add Metrolina Greenhouses, one of the largest growers in the U.S., to the list of those with MPS-A sustainability certificates. The North Carolina-based business, known for its cutting-edge automation, has also focused on sustainability in recent years. They collect rainwater and recycle/reuse water. In addition, they utilize wood burners to generate energy.
 
After a year of documenting their use of crop protection agents, fertilizers, energy, water and waste, they scored high enough on their environmental scorecard to earn an MPS-A certificate. GT
