Our Approach to Environmental Sustainability

As market leaders in the Australian beef industry, we know how important it is that we monitor, invest in, report on and improve our environmental sustainability. We are committed to operating in a way that benefits the environment as much as possible, and we know that the key to ensuring long-term business performance is through measuring and managing our environmental performance.

We constantly monitor and work to improve on all aspects of our environmental sustainability, including but not limited to our:

  • Water consumption
  • Waste
  • Energy consumption
  • Carbon footprint

Our very high standard of environmental performance adheres to all relevant legislative and customer requirements. We also continuously strive to improve our environmentally sustainable processes. How do we do this? By investing in technologies, partnerships and environmental projects that allow us to reduce our environmental impact. For example, we recently invested in two industry leading Waste Water Treatment Plants (WWTPs) at our Beenleigh and Rockhampton locations. Since investing in these WWTPs, we have seen a vast improvement in our environmental sustainability. See more details here and check out the video below:

When it comes to reducing our environmental impact, we set ourselves clear, measurable targets. Our commitment to environmental sustainability has earned us numerous awards, including:
