Our Beef Sustainability Framework

The Australian Beef Sustainability Report was developed by RMAC to future-proof our industry and ensure we are moving together towards a better red meat future.

RMAC spearheaded the development of the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework (ABSF) in 2015.

It reports on our sustainable practices across:

  1. Animal welfare
  2. Economic resilience
  3. Environmental stewardship
  4. People and community.

The ABSF takes a multi-stakeholder collaborative approach, across our industry and reports back to the customer, and this has contributed to its success.

It has formed the basis of an implementation framework for Red Meat 2030 and other industry initiatives including the first-ever Industry Affairs Unit.
