Goals for all Framework priorities

Since the Framework’s launch in 2017, work has focused on consolidating its foundation. This work has included reporting more data: from presenting data for 50% of indicators in 2017 to 83% in 2019. RMAC sees setting goals as a natural progression and has directed the SSG to lead the process of goal setting in order to take the Framework from a scorecard to a stronger commitment to sustainable improvement.

The Framework’s mandate is to help guide industry action on sustainability. Goals will provide a tangible pathway for industry to meet consumer and community expectations. Progress against goals will provide proof of our continuous improvement to stakeholders. The SSG will consult widely and collaborate to set goals. This activity will focus on the six key priorities first.

Progress at June 2020

Under the direction of RMAC, the SSG has been exploring the possibility 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. Heading into 2021, the Framework will look to engage technical experts and consult widely with industry and external stakeholders to develop sustainability goals that can practically encourage continuous improvement.

The SSG designed five guiding principles for goal development. These principles will serve as the foundation for goal development activities. These principles were confirmed by the Consultative Committee in August 2019 and by RMAC in early 2020.
