Our Vision

Farming Forever: Farmers and our representatives are climate leaders

Our Mission

To influence Australia to adopt strong economy-wide climate policies and realise a prosperous and sustainable future, full of opportunity for farmers and farming communities

 

Farmers for Climate Action is a movement of farmers, agricultural leaders and rural Australians working to influence Australia to adopt strong climate policies by growing the number of farmers, farming communities and elected representatives championing ambitious action. 

We connect farmers with each other and support them to advocate for and enact climate solutions both on and off farm. 

We are independent, non-profit and non-partisan. We represent 7,000 farmers across Australia, and our supporter base includes over 35,000 Australians committed to climate action for agriculture.

Our members and our Board can be found across the country from the tropical north of Queensland to the cooler climes of Tasmania, and from the wine growing regions of Western Australia right across to the sheep and cropping farms of New South Wales. Our staff members are spread across Australia, working remotely and from our office hubs.

We work closely with people and organisations across the agricultural and climate sectors to find opportunities to tackle the challenge of climate change and ensure rural communities’ interests are represented.

We are a member of the National Farmers’ Federation and a member of the Climate Action Network Australia.

We believe that if we grow the number of farmers, their communities and their representatives who are leading on climate-smart farming solutions and championing strong economy-wide climate policy, we can influence governments to implement climate policies that mitigate climate change and benefit rural communities.

We approach our work with a few key principles
  • We are evidence-based and informed by the best available science.
  • We are collaborative, inclusive and respectful.
  • We respect and embrace the diversity and wisdom of farming communities.
  • We are empowering our farmers to be bold and courageous and widening the space for rural Australia to take action on climate change.
  • We are sustainable and are committed to being here for the long haul through being ecologically, financially and socially responsible.
  • We are strategic and work towards delivering tangible, long-term results, while maximising our impact.
