At Sundrop Farms, we take sustainability very importantly; ensuring that we have a positive impact on the planet is a key tenant in our triple bottom line, along with benefiting people and producing profits. Steffen is one of our superstar growers at our Port Augusta farm, and environmental causes have always been close to his heart. We asked him to expand a little on this, and to explain why it is so important to him. Read his call to arms below:
When I was studying Agriculture at Melbourne Polytechnic I became increasingly concerned with what was going on in the world around me.
Overwhelming scientific evidence showed that he world was warming up, and I realized that I had to make a difference.
The more I looked, the more I could see that things were out of control; fertile farm land disappearing to provide more land for more livestock. At the same time, precious habitats for rare species were decreasing while we polluted soils to provide more food for an exploding population.
I asked myself, ‘How can I make a change, How can I help?’
I came to the conclusion that new thinking was required. New technology was a must…
It was at this point that I came across Sundrop Farms. An emerging company which adopted to the challenges of our century. They used cutting edge technology combined with an experienced, international team.
Current environmental issues make us all vulnerable to disasters and tragedies. We must act now and have to move in a better direction. Unless we address these various issues today we are heading for disaster. The world needs your attention. It’s up to us what happens to the future of our planet.
