The environmental management system for Australian nursery production
Nursery and Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) in partnership with Horticulture Australia Limited (HAL) have developed a set of guidelines that provide a systematic approach for production nurseries to assess their environmental and natural resource management responsibilities.
What is EcoHort?
EcoHort is the industry-specific set of guidelines or Environmental Management System (EMS). It is a method by which a grower can demonstrate to industry, government and the community their sound environmental and natural resource stewardship. Adopting the process of EcoHort will allow you to show that your business:
1. Has utilised a recognized system for assessing likely environmental and natural resource impacts
2. Is managing these impacts in a responsible and sustainable manner.
For businesses that have invested time and money into systems and technology that advance the business while enhancing environmental and natural resource outcomes, EcoHort offers a practical means of gaining recognition for these efforts.
