AIPH Conference: The path to Sustainability in Ornamental Horticulture
Sustainability is now a high priority for many businesses in the ornamental horticulture industry. Not only is it critical for making a better world, but it is a core part of business decision-making…
AIPH has partnered with GreenTech Live & Online, the Floriculture Sustainability Initiative (FSI) and FloraCulture International (FCI) to create a virtual online international conference on ‘The path to sustainability in ornamental horticulture’ on 30 September 2021. Considering the importance of the topic, International Florist Organisation is proud to sign on as a sponsor as well.
Speakers, from around the world, will evaluate what the industry is doing to become more sustainable; how we can measure progress and what the future holds.
Following a keynote presentation from Dr David Bek of Coventry University, UK, the conference will discuss the role of certification and progress in key areas including plastics, growing media, energy, pesticide reduction and people.
“The global ornamental horticulture industry makes such a positive contribution to the planet in so many ways, but to create a truly sustainable supply chain we need to share initiatives and work together. This conference provides the perfect platform for taking this forwards.”
Tim Briercliffe, Secretary General, AIPH
