Sustainability

Solar powered hot water in the dairy

The Australian dairy industry has developed a whole-of-industry Sustainability Framework which aims to: 
  • Enhance livelihoods across the industry 
  • Improve community and animal wellbeing
  • Reduce our environmental impact

Dairy Australia is working with milk companies to develop an industry sustainability reporting framework that meets stakeholder’s needs. A key requirement is to ensure selected sustainability indicators are clear, measurable, defendable and easily collated without significant cost and time burdens on farmers and processors.

DairySAT is an environmental self-assessment and action planning tool for Australian dairy farmers. The updated online tool is now available.
