Sustainability survey - what's most important to you?

Ahead of the COP26 climate change conference in Glasgow in November and moves by horticulture businesses to go net zero, Horticulture Week asks what are your priorities to address carbon neutrality?


Horticulture Week is surveying the opinions of horticulture professionals about which sustainability issues are most important to them.

We ask readers to rank in order of importance to them: carbon offsetting, sourcing of sustainable wood, net zero, growing media, water, plastic, packaging, pesticides, fertilisers, biodiversity, soil and renewable energy.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says Britain can get to complete clean energy production by 2035, while peat use is set to be phased out by 2029 and a plastic packaging tax is planned for April 2022, among many policy moves looking at cutting global warming and pollution.

The survey is anonymous and will take just a minute to complete. Comments are welcome.
