EcoRange: Development of Market-Oriented Environmental Certification for Rangeland Pastoral Industries arose out of a desire of government, industry and community for market forces to encourage the adoption of on-farm environmental management and assurance standards. It is a collaborative project between Queensland Department of Primary Industry Agency for Food and Fibre Sciences and CSIRO Sustainable Ecosystems.
The EcoRange project provides marketing information and strategies for ‘environment-friendly’ food and fibre products, describes and contrasts a range of market-oriented environmental management and assurance standards that could be used on farms, and makes recommendations on the application of these to agricultural production. Recommendations were based on the views and expectations of the main stakeholders along the supply chain, agricultural industry organisations, and a number of community interest groups.
