Setting Sustainability Goals is a natural progression that will make the Australian beef industry’s ambitions more transparent.
The Sustainability Steering Group under the direction of RMAC is exploring the prospect of goals for the Framework to better meet consumer and community expectations, protect access to capital and markets, and provide clearer guidance to the industry on where to invest its efforts for continuous improvement.
A governance approach has been developed and will be underpinned by the Framework’s overall governance approach. In 2021 the SSSG will look to engage technical experts and consult widely with industry and external stakeholders to develop sustainability goals that can support continuous improvement.
The SSG has designed five guiding principles for goal development. These principles have been confirmed by the Consultative Committee and RMAC and will serve the foundation for goal development activities.
