We believe that investing sustainably is critical to maximising the value of our agricultural assets and generating competitive returns for our investors over the long term.

Embedded Sustainability Strategy

Our sustainability strategy is embedded in our operating strategy and used to prioritise activities across our agricultural platforms and to monitor and assess progress.

Investing Sustainably Delivers Many Rewards

Investing well and investing sustainably in Australian agriculture can deliver many rewards – positive social and community impact, significant environmental benefits, and competitive financial outcomes for investors. This is why we take a holistic approach to sustainable agriculture that seeks to achieve a balanced range of outcomes across social, economic and environmental considerations.

Our approach to sustainability is to adapt and evolve our practices over time to continually improve our sustainability performance over the long-term. In fact, we have been investing sustainably in agriculture for over 25 years since the launch of our first institutional agricultural cropping mandate in 1996.

The Three Pillars of Our Holistic Approach


Warakirri Agriculture - The three pillars of our holistic approach to sustainability

Our commitment to sustainability is underpinned by three pillars that include the

  • long-term needs of our people and communities,
  • sustainable and profitable farming practices, and
  • safeguarding our climate and the environment.

Operating within a mature governance framework, each pillar entails specific goals and targets that are measured on an annual basis and guide our everyday operations.

Sustainability in Action

We engage in a range of activities in support of our sustainability goals across our national farms and rural communities on a daily basis. Our goals are supported by specific annual targets that allow us to monitor and continuously improve our sustainable farming practices.
