The Australian Red Meat CN2030 Road Map

The Australian red meat industry has set a target to be carbon neutral by 2030 (CN30). This means that by 2030, Australian beef, lamb and goat production, including lot feeding and meat processing, aim to make no net release of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions into the atmosphere. 

Meat & Livestock Australia’s investment into CN30 research, development (R&D) and adoption aims to enable and empower the red meat industry to achieve the target, reduce operating emissions while maintaining productivity gains.    

The CN30 target sends a clear signal to government, global markets and consumers that the livestock industry is proactively addressing emissions and taking action to improve long-term productivity. By taking action, the red meat industry pre-empts current and future market expectations regarding environmental credentials which will allow red meat producers to stamp their mark in a competitive global protein market. CN30’s suite of innovation will also deliver win-win benefits for producers, including productivity gains and profit drivers through the carbon market or premium supply chains. Read more here
