Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent the world’s plan of action for social inclusion, environmental sustainability and economic development.
Increasingly, it is the expectation of communities, investors, and other stakeholders that industries, including those in agriculture, collate and communicate clear evidence of their sustainability. Understanding how the ABSF aligns with the SDGs helps the Australian beef industry meet these evolving expectations as the SDGs have become a shared language or shorthand by which people around the world can talk about sustainable development.
The SSG undertook to map the 17 SDGs against the ABSF’s indicators, to further finer detail to the comparison and aid understanding of the ABSF both domestically and internationally. This alignment exercise has found that the ABSF is contributing to 12 UN SDGs. The below diagram depicts which SDGs align with the ABSF.
