Stakeholders from both within and outside the industry have been widely engaged across a three-stage program of consultation led by the Sheep Sustainability Steering Group (Sheep SSG). Stakeholders were given the opportunity to provide feedback on two drafts of the Framework, informing the development and refinement of the final document.

Further to this, a program of specific consultations were carried out in addition to the three stages. These included workshops with overseas wool processors and spinners, domestic wool processors, garment retailers, meat processors, policy development groups and State Farming Organisations.
