Supply industry’s 30-year sustainability vision unveiled

Included in the roadmap from the Agricultural Industries Confederation are targets for a 60 per cent increase in input efficiency by 2050, a 40 per cent increase in the recovery of resources used in the making of inputs and the meeting of zero carbon emission goals by using more green energy and decarbonising production.
