Guidelines for Environmental Assurance in Australian Horticulture

Published on October 2, 2015

The second edition Guidelines for Environmental Assurance are a great go-to resource for Freshcare businesses who have implemented Freshcare Environmental, or are preparing to do so.

The Guidelines cover the growing, harvesting, packing, storage and dispatch stages of horticultural production and provide a platform for environmental auditing and certification options relevant to Australian environmental issues.

The Guidelines also provide a great supplementary resource for Freshcare Environmental and Environmental Viticulture participants on key elements in the Codes, such as the management of land and soil; water; biodiversity; greenhouse gas emissions and energy use.
