Greenhouse gas mitigation potential of the Australian red meat production and processing sectors

The purpose of this project was to investigate if the Australian red meat industry could become carbon neutral by 2030 (CN30), and if so, how. This involved firstly establishing a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions baseline year (2005) encompassing farm, feedlot and processing sectors. Following this, the most promising practices to reduce and offset GHG emissions were identified and a series of research, development and adoption (RD&A) pathways proposed.

The study was instigated by MLA in recognition that customers, investors, federal and state governments have carbon reduction policies in place. 

This report has identified that it is possible to become carbon neutral and MLA will develop business models to unlock productivity for industry.
