About Us

The Australian Agricultural Sustainability Framework (AASF) is a joint initiative led by the National Farmers’ Federation and supported by the Australian Government. The AASF sets out a unified understanding of sustainability objectives through a standard set of themes, principles and criteria. The themes encompass environmental stewardship, wellbeing of people, animals and the community, and bolstering economic resilience. By aligning sector-specific and supply chain terminology, the AASF fosters stakeholder coherence and enables better communication of industry-wide sustainability goals.
