Annual Sustainability Reports

The Framework's annual sustainability reports capture the performance of the Framework and industry in the past year. In 2017, the industry launched the Framework with the publication of an initial report.

The first Annual Update was published in 2018, reporting against the Framework’s 23 priorities and filling data gaps. This work continued, with the publication of the 2019 Annual Update.

The 2019 Annual Update:

  • Shows the progress industry has made since baseline data was collected for many indicators in 2018;
  • Outlines activity underway and planned for six key priorities selected by stakeholders and industry;
  • Provides industry’s position for each of the six key priorities;
  • Where data permits, reports on industry performance across 23 priorities; and
  • Provides case studies of sustainable practice through the value chain.

Now that Framework’s data foundation has been established, the SSG hopes to show trends over time. The SSG will keep reporting annual progress against the indicators. With the addition of targets, the SSG hopes these reports will become an even more powerful story of progress and commitment to continuous improvement.

Progress at June 2019

The 2019 Annual Update was released on 6 June 2019. Work will shortly commence on the 2020 Annual Update.
