Australian organic beef company OBE Organic has joined the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, the UN Global Compact.

By signing up to the UN Global Compact, the business will contribute to development goals such as: farmer productivity and environmental management; gender and ethnic diversity; farm safety; and animal health and industry partnerships. It is the only Australian beef company to join the initiative.

OBE Organic managing director Dalene Wray said supporting the UN Global Compact as a signatory underlines its commitment to running a sustainable beef supply chain.

“We’re an organic company started by family farmers, so looking after the land, cattle and people has been in our DNA since day one,”​ she said. “We began to formalise this work in 2015 with our FLOURISH sustainability program, which involved our entire company working together to identify environment, animals, people and product topics we need to manage well.

“Joining the UN Global Compact requires little change to our existing sustainability work, but it does show our customers around the world we are serious about producing ethical and sustainable beef that consumers can feel good about buying.”
