Engagements with key stakeholders

The SSG interacts with a variety of stakeholders such as government, corporates, grassroots producers, NGOs and financial institutions. In the past year, the SSG has unlocked opportunities by engaging these groups, using the Framework to guide sustainable practice.

The SSG will continue this active engagement with key stakeholders. Grassroots producers and financial institutions will be a focus.

Progress at June 2020

Active engagement with key stakeholders continues.

Engagement through events

Framework representatives presented or had a stall at over 25 events since last year’s report in June 2019. These included: Red Meat Update Tasmania, Red Meat 2019, Cattle Council Rising Champions Alumni Forum, Australian Rangelands Conference, QLD Rural Press Club, and the AFI Annual Conference.

Upcoming sustainability events and updates of what events SSG members will be attending can be found here.

Stakeholder meetings

Framework representatives meet regularly with stakeholders through formal briefings, stakeholder committee meetings or informal meetings. These meetings provide an opportunity for discussion with different stakeholders.

SSG members habitually meet with the beef industry peak industry councils and in the past year, met with national and state farming organisations including: the AgForce Cattle Board, Tasmania Farmers and Graziers, NFF, the Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association, and the NSW Farmers Executive Committee. Meetings were also held with domestic and international customers, as well as representatives from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment.

Digital updates

A monthly eNews keeps over 400 stakeholders informed about Framework and industry activities. This is supported by ongoing social media posts and website updates.

Online feedback

An online feedback form is available here where stakeholders can provide feedback on the Framework and each Annual Update.

Surveys

The Framework engages producers annually through a producer sustainability survey. Its results are reported in the Framework’s Annual Updates. In 2020, the survey received 254 responses, up from 181 in 2019.
