The South Australian red meat and wool industries are the backbone of the livestock and meat processing sectors, which contribute $5.4 billion annually to our state’s economy. The red meat and livestock industry has been more proactive than any other agricultural industry on setting goals and measuring its sustainability. Since 2005, the industry has reduced emissions by almost 60 per cent and halved its contribution to national greenhouse gas emissions – the greatest reduction by any sector in Australia’s economy. In 2017, the industry set a target to be carbon neutral by 2030 (CN30) and it is making solid progress towards realising this goal. Lamb production is already climate neutral, and we are getting closer to being climate neutral for beef.
