The ABSF and its ongoing development has been informed by rigorous stakeholder engagement standards with those who have an interest in the beef industry and who can affect or be affected by it. These standards give the Framework rigour and integrity and ensure all stakeholders are actively engaged and their views respectfully considered.
Engaging with stakeholders ensures the Framework is addressing, measuring, and reporting the sustainability uses that the industry and community are interested in. These relationships help the SSG and industry representatives make informed decisions and allow the Framework to provide stakeholders with the information they need to make better decisions.
Key stakeholder consultation measures include the biannual Consultative Committees and Industry Forums.
