What was it all about?

This project was commissioned by Nursery & Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) to conduct an environmental risk assessment for production nurseries, retail nurseries and growing media suppliers, and develop an environmental management framework chapter for the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme Australia Best Management Practice guidelines (for production nurseries and growing media suppliers) and the Australian Garden Centre Accreditation Scheme Manual (for retail nurseries).

This initiative by NGIA served the Nursery & Garden Industry well as the community became more conscious of the need to protect the environment and placed more pressure on industries to do likewise. Production nurseries and Garden Centres gained an opportunity to be recognised for their good environmental practices through their respective industry accreditation schemes.
