Costa Farms

Costa Farms, headquartered in Miami, Florida (AKA plant paradise!), is one of the largest horticultural growers in the world. The company sprouted in 1961 when our founder, Jose Costa Sr., purchased 30 acres south of Miami to grow fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes in the winter and calamondin citrus in the summer. That soon morphed into houseplants, and the Costa Farms family started innovating and introduced new houseplants such as the canela tree and Cecilia Aglaonema. We grow a stunning array – more than 1,500 varieties – of houseplants to help ensure you can grow houseplants successfully. And we’re always working on putting together new plant collections that make it easier for you to pick the plants that are right for you. For example, our Plants of Steel collection puts the varieties we find best tolerate neglect. And our Exotic Angel brand of plants represents some of the most beautiful, interesting, and colorful varieties available. To ensure you have a good experience with our houseplants, we acclimate our plants from Miami conditions to those of the average household environment before shipping them to the stores

ESG/Ethical Impact

Costa has developed a Sustainable Commercial Farming ‘Overarching Objective’ which broadly defines not only what we are seeking to achieve but also acknowledges the environmental and social responsibilities that go hand-in-hand with integrating Sustainable Commercial Farming into everything we do at Costa. The health and safety of our workforce is a top priority for Costa, and we have sought to continuously improve the working environment, both in Australia and in our international operations, and to consistently report our key metrics and progress. In 2022, we tragically lost one of our team members when they died as a result of a traffic accident at one of our China farms. We have been deeply saddened by this event and our sincere condolences go to the family, community and our people who were impacted. Our focus continues to be on ensuring the highest of standards and safety measures are in place and followed at all times which includes the implementation across the entire business of a High-Potential Incident program, details of which are provided in this report. We are also continuing to ensure regular health and safety training of all employees, that we are building an open culture for reporting issues, and are regularly monitoring and assessing compliance and ensuring strong accountability of all team members. As we continue our SCF journey, we recognise the imperative of monitoring the external environment and playing our part in what is increasingly becoming a global approach and response. There is now widespread recognition and support for action on climate change as evidenced by the setting of emission reduction targets by governments in Australia and internationally. Costa supports this action and has committed in 2021 to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We have also outlined our plans to move to Science Based Target initiatives (SBTi).
