Creating a better future for Australian apple and pear growers,
through industry leadership and commercial advancement.

Future Business Workshop – Powerful changes secure cost savings

Future Business

In our changing climate, what does sustainability mean for Australian apple and pear businesses and why has it become a mainstream concern? With increasing costs of energy and limited access to natural resources such as water, it’s important to look beyond productivity per hectare to more effective and efficient ways of managing your business inputs. This will ensure future food production and job security are sustainable into the future.

Attend this Future Business breakfast workshop if you’re interested in understanding how to take control of your business’ energy usage and costs while optimising the systems you’re currently using. Melbourne-based business consultancy ReThink Sustainability will examine some key sustainability opportunities and look at how to harness them for your business.
