Environment and Sustainability Committee
In August 2018 Cattle Council formed its Environment and Sustainability (ENVR) committee. The ENVR committee develops key priority areas, including a policy position around climate variability which will be supported by statements on carbon neutrality, sustainability metrics, and extension and adoption of current and future research.
Another focus area is to work with the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework (ABSF) and State Farming Organisations to develop a national statement on vegetation management. A position like this would allow for substantial data collection and benchmarking for the ABSF.
