Projects and Partners
Integrity Ag & Environment specialises in agri-environmental research and development for a range of clients locally and internationally. Our agricultural analysts and consultants are on the cutting-edge of sustainable agricultural tools and technology. We help farmers, producers and agricultural companies refine their processes to reduce their environmental footprints and improve production outcomes, where possible. Below is a sample of our current and completed projects.
Coles Carbon Neutral Beef Project | Coles
IAE is partnering with Coles, Climate Active and the beef supply chain to deliver carbon neutral beef to Australian consumers through Coles supermarkets as part of their ‘Finest’ brand. Over the past two years we’ve been working with committed producers in the supply chain and Coles to make this happen. IAE have worked to reduce net emissions through production efficiency and an innovative “insetting” pilot, in which farmers can utilize on farm tree planting to reduce net emissions. Moving forward we will expand emission reduction activities and explore soil carbon sequestration to deliver sustainable beef. We always aim to create integrity in systems that allow better outcomes for the environment, agriculture and the world.

Carbon Neutral Workshops | Landcare Australia
IAE delivered a series of carbon footprint accounting workshops nationally throughout 2021. Interested producers were helped to understand their carbon footprint and discover how it will underpin industry/sector sustainability strategy reporting, future investment and potential new markets.
National GHG Accounting Framework for Livestock | DISER
IAE contributed to the Livestock Emissions Framework to support improved estimates from livestock in alignment with the NGGI, to enable estimated emissions from the use of emerging low emissions feeds and feed supplements and from improved herd management practices.
Sustainable Finance Pilot | Stockyard Beef & CommBank
IAE provided environmental benchmarking to establish eligibility requirements for sustainability-linked loans (SLL) from CommBank. Premium Queensland beef producer, Stockyard Group, was an early adopter, and working with them closely IAE was able to underpin this concept with data and analytics on their production systems, and helping them to benchmark their systems to help Stockyard stretch towards sustainable outcomes in emissions reduction, significantly beyond its existing, strong baseline performance.
LCA of Raw Sugar | Sugar Research Australia (SRA)
SRA engaged IAE to conduct a full LCA of raw sugar covering the full supply chain (cradle to grave).
