Industry leadership

The industry leadership work area includes activities aimed at building leadership capacity and competency across all stakeholders within the red meat industry. This is vital for enabling the transition to a carbon neutral position in 2030.

Key measures of success in 2030

Success in 2030 will be defined as an established network of experienced and respected advisors able to support training, and adoption of practices aligned with the CN30 target across the red meat industry.
