  • To embrace all relevant information sources of herbal medicine from traditional use across cultures to modern evidence-based medicine.
  • To promote the use of practices in farming, wild harvesting and animal husbandry that are ethical and ecologically sustainable with particular consideration given to endangered species and habitats.
  • To promote continuing ethical research in the field of herbal medicine.
