WHO WE ARE
The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 objectives that were set back in 2015 to help lead
the Earth to a more secure 2030. We highlight some of them here, because products grown in indoor
vertical farms (IVF) fulfil at least 10 of these goals.
We will provide good jobs and accessible, reliable, healthy foods, able to feed growing urban populations.
Since IVF can be built anywhere, we can make nutrient-rich produce accessible year-round.
Good health and well-being
Eating fresh produce is linked to decreases in chronic diseases. We can selectively grow plants containing certain desirable qualities, like for medicinal purposes.
and economic growth
Despite high levels of automation in IVF, Urban Health Farms looks to create many new jobs and drive economic growth in urban areas.
We are promoting and advancing sustainable technology and growth in an industry that needs rapid modernisation.
With an ever-increasing global population, urban planning must include food sources that are green, resilient and sustainable.
IVF uses 80% less water and 90% less land than traditional agriculture and produces 20-30 times more food in the same space.
IVF production techniques are efficient with no CO2 emissions, drastically reduced food miles, and no runoff or effluent.
Life on land
Modern agriculture has damaged ecosystems around the world. IVF eases the pressure on lands under cultivation and allows natural habitats to recover.
Partnerships for the goals
IVF can strengthen global partnerships and bring together progress and growth in many different economic sectors.
