The Australian grains industry sustainability framework, Behind Australian Grain (or the Framework), encompassing the whole value chain, was developed to strengthen our industry’s sustainability and assist in ensuring we continue to meet the changing expectations and needs of our consumers, the community, investors and governments for the decade to 2030. It is important our industry is sustainable in economic, environmental and social terms and our communities and customers understand and trust how we operate.
Stage 1 of the framework is completed which includes three pillars and twelve goals. Work continues on identifying the appropriate metrics and targets for each goal as part of Stage 2.
