Sustainability Framework recognised with Banksia Award

The Australian dairy industry has been recognised for its ongoing commitment to sustainability at the
Banksia Sustainability Awards held in Sydney on November 13.

The industry was presented with the Food for Sustainable Thought Award and was a finalist for the Natural Capital Award for work achieved under its
Sustainability Framework. Chair of the Sustainability
Framework Steering Committee, Chris Griffin accepted the award on behalf of the industry.

“The Australian dairy industry is committed to achieving ongoing improvement to ensure a sustainable future for the next generation of farmers and
dairy consumers,” Mr Griffin said.

“We thank the Banksia Foundation and the judges involved for recognising our commitment to a sustainable future and our progress so far.”

An important part of the Australian dairy industry implementing the framework is for customers and the community to follow our performance and progress,”
Mr Griffin said.

“We welcome the opportunity to share the evidence of our progress against key targets on our farms and in the manufacturing sector.”

An initiative of the Australian Dairy Industry Council (ADIC) in collaboration with Dairy Australia, the Australian Dairy Industry Sustainability Framework
takes whole-of-chain approach to sustainability from feed production to manufacturing, retail and packaging.

Endorsed by industry in 2012, the Framework outlines the industry’s commitment to enhance livelihoods, improve wellbeing and reduce our environmental
footprint. 

To ensure dairy is recognised worldwide as a responsible, responsive and prosperous producer of nutritious food, the Framework sets 11 economic, social
and environmental targets to be achieved by the year 2020.

The third Sustainability Framework Progress Report is due to be released in February 2016 to benchmark how the industry is tracking towards achieving
these targets, including supporting case studies to back these findings.
