Sheep Producers Australia (SPA) and WoolProducers Australia (WPA) lead the Framework.
Australian Wool Innovation and Meat & Livestock Australia are providing funding, together with strategic and secretariat support.
The Sustainability Steering Group (SSG) is building the framework. The SSG features strong representation across sheep producing regions and the wool and meat value chain. They identify priority issues related to Australian sheep meat and wool production.
There will be input from industry representatives and stakeholders, including customers, government, interest groups, technical experts and investors. A Consultative Committee, made up of representatives from these groups, will be formed to provide ongoing input to the Framework. Expert working groups will also be convened when necessary.
The industry will report progress against the Framework annually. Note that separate performance indicators will be included for the sheep meat and wool sectors as relevant and where data exists.
The governance structure is outlined below.
