A brighter future with lower emissions

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do

Agrimix was born out of a drive to increase grazing pasture health and animal welfare whilst supporting regional communities across the northern half of Australia to be prosperous and productive.

With decades of experience in tropical pasture improvement, we have developed Progardes® as a real solution for graziers offering multiple benefits. Learn more about the benefits here.

Our commitments extend beyond our products and services, with a business wide approach to sustainable practices and a pledge to go carbon neutral in our own business operations.

Going Carbon Neutral

In 2021, Agrimix took a step further, baselining our operational carbon emissions.
Baselining our carbon footprint is an important step in our sustainability strategy. Carbon reporting provides a clear picture of our carbon neutral efforts and allows us to set clear goals for further reduction into the future.
Agrimix is now certified Climate Active Carbon Neutral for our business operations.

What it means to be carbon neutral at Agrimix?

At Agrimix, we know our carbon footprint is the first step towards adopting sustainable practices and reducing our carbon emissions – knowing where we stand now helps us determine areas where there is the most potential for emission reduction.

How are we reducing our emissions?

We know every little bit helps, so we have a number of initiatives to reduce our impact and our emissions across all parts of our business.

All the way from power (GreenPower), to pallets (CHEP Sustainable Pallet System), to flights (carbon credits for staff travel), to fleets (EcoDRIVE initiative).

Agrimix is transitioning its warehouse operations to GreenPower. GreenPower is 100% renewable energy available for households and businesses through most energy retailers in Australia.

The Agrimix fleet choose EcoDRIVE, offsetting carbon emissions through planting forests. These native forests are legally protected for 100 years, supporting long-term carbon sequestration and providing habitats for wildlife.

At Agrimix we are thinking bigger

We don’t want to just reduce our own emissions. We want to support landholders as well.

That’s why we are investing in major projects that will deliver solutions for the agriculture industry.

Read below about our ground breaking soil carbon project with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) – ‘Transforming the measurement of soil carbon’, and our greenhouse gas mitigation work – including methane emissions reductions in cattle ‘Livestock can lower methane emissions’.

We are also members of a valuable Carbon Storage Partnership, an initiative of Meat & Livestock Australia that aims to build the capability and capacity of Australia’s livestock sector to become carbon neutral by 2030 (CN30).

A key focus of the Partnership is assisting and supporting producers to learn about the opportunities for carbon neutrality, and developing a pathway that is profitable, environmentally sustainable and socially acceptable.

All systems go
All Systems Go, a new report commissioned by NAB, highlights that $70 billion in structural changes is required over the next decade and $420 billion in new investment is needed over the next 30 years to position Australia’s economy for growth in a low emissions world.
