Hort Innovation Our work The Australian-grown Horticulture Sustainability Framework

The 2023/24 Australian-grown Horticulture Sustainability Framework

Creating a sustainability framework for Australian horticulture

People, natural resources, communities and thriving businesses are core to the sustainability of Australian-grown horticulture. Horticulture’s many industries produce fruits, vegetables, nuts and greenlife that are essential for the health and wellbeing of people, communities and landscapes.

Hort Innovation has worked with Australian horticulture’s industries and stakeholders to develop this framework. It is a process for understanding and measuring the many elements of sustainability of Australian-grown horticultural production and setting goals for the future.

Initially launched in 2021, this 2023 revision incorporates industry and supply chain feedback and aligns with emerging policy and market drivers for sustainability measures and data.
