Australia’s sheep meat and wool industry is developing a Sheep Sustainability Framework (the Framework).
The Framework will report on the key priorities of responsible sheep meat and wool production to build trust and confidence in the industry.
Sheep Producers Australia (SPA) and WoolProducers Australia (WPA) initiated the sheep industry Framework concept, and will jointly approve the completed Framework. SPA and WPA have appointed a Sustainability Steering Group (SSG) to lead the Framework development process.
The Sheep SSG is currently consulting with stakeholders to build an industry Framework that is robust and fit for purpose. It is anticipated the Framework will be launched in 2021.
