Renewing our ambition for a healthier world

Review, revise and refresh – renewal is a continuous cycle in sustainable development. Renewal is on our sustainability agenda too.
This month, we welcome a new Chair of the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Framework Steering Committee, and we start a review of our ambition for sustainable dairy production.
Purposefully, this cycle of renewal coincides with efforts by the United Nations to build a post-2020 global framework for managing biodiversity and find pathways to a sustainable food system by 2030.
Welcome to this month’s edition.

Dairy framework set for renewal
