How the Framework is being used

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Framework is used by industry to guide and track performance on-farm and through the value chain to ensure that Australia continues to be recognised as a global leader in sustainable beef production.

A focus on aligning environmental, welfare, social and economic practices with best evidence and community expectations, while growing profitability will help ensure continued access to markets and capital for Australian beef businesses.

The Framework provides consumers, customers, industry and other interested stakeholders with a clear snapshot of the beef industry’s performance across environmental, welfare, social and economic areas. The process of consultation provides stakeholders with a forum to provide constructive feedback.

Companies can use the Framework to inform their own sustainability activities outside of the Framework process. Below are testimonials of companies that are utilising the Framework in this way.

The Framework supports the strategy outlined in Red Meat 2030 to deliver for the longevity and prosperity of our people, our livestock and the communities we serve.

The Framework is used to:

  • Advise industry investment for continuous improvement in areas most important to our customers and other stakeholders
  • Help protect and grow access to investment and finance by providing evidence of performance and a clear path to continuous improvement
  • Foster constructive relationships with stakeholders to work collaboratively on continuous improvement
  • Promote our industry to the community and customers.

The Framework does not:

  • Establish or endorse measurement systems at an individual business level
  • Provide an accreditation or certification system
  • Endorse prescriptive management practices
  • Create paperwork for individual businesses – existing data is used where available.
