Are you interested in having input into the Australian Dairy Sustainability Framework.

Here is a 10 minute online survey for the weekend to provide your insights on key sustainability issues that impact on the dairy industry - there will be other opportunities.

The dairy industry is committed to tackling Sustainability Issues – and formally established its Sustainability Framework in 2012 (the latest Sustainability Report, released in December 2023, is available here.

Dairy is also committed to continuous improvement and we periodically review and revise our Sustainability Commitments, Goals and Targets. We are now undertaking a Materiality Assessment.

A Materiality Assessment provides an opportunity to gain stakeholders perspectives on what they see are the most relevant sustainability topics for the dairy industry. It will also enable a refresh of the Sustainability Framework to reflect global changes in operating contexts, sustainability standards and regulations. The last formal Materiality Assessment was done in 2019/20.

On behalf of the Australian Dairy Sustainability Framework (ADSF) Steering Committee, we invite you to participate in an online survey to provide your insights on key sustainability issues that either impact on the dairy industry or the industry has an impact on – both positive and negative. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes of your time, but the insights you provide will be invaluable in enabling the dairy industry to review its existing Sustainability Commitments, Goals and Targets and ensure we are focusing on what matters most. Data collected through this online survey will be anonymous and confidential, providing an opportunity for you to share your perspective.

If you have any questions relating to the dairy industry’s Sustainability Framework or online survey, just reply to this email and we will respond, or if you prefer, we can connect you with the Chair of the Sustainability Steering Committee.
