The world first Australian Sheep Sustainability Framework is now open for public consultation and you are invited to offer your feedback, comments and ideas via an online survey and discussion forum.

The Sheep Sustainability Framework is the first to be designed specifically for a sheep industry and its supply chain. The industry-led framework identifies sustainability priorities and uses evidence to track industry progress against key sustainability measures.

Industry representatives and stakeholders, including customers, government, interest groups, technical experts and investors, have already contributed to the draft Framework.

Sheep Producers Australia and WoolProducers Australia are leading the development of Framework, with Australian Wool Innovation and Meat & Livestock Australia providing funding and support.

The Framework is due for launch in April 2021.

To have your say visit by Wednesday 9 December. For more information on the Framework, contact  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
