Through a detailed consultation process, Behind Australian Grain has identified 12 goals across three pillars. Ambitious but achievable 2030 targets to give us something tangible to aim for. For some goals, more accurate baseline data is needed before targets can be set.

The industry has been actively working to improve its performance in these areas for many years and will continue to do so. They are all important.

To ensure industry resources are aimed at the areas of greatest impact, priority goals that are most important to our value chain partners have been identified.
