Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef seeks input on "indicators" for Beef Production

The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) is seeking the public’s comments on the first draft of its sustainability “indicators” for beef operations. The indicators are part of the verified sustainable beef framework the organization is developing, and reflect what will be measured in terms of sustainability on individual operations.

The public consultation will take place from February 9 to April 10, 2016; the materials and instructions for comment can be found at: http://crsb.ca/public-consultation-english/.

“The CRSB has developed indicators that are relevant for cow-calf, backgrounding, feedlot and dairy beef operations. We encourage people and organizations to review the work we’ve done and give us constructive feedback,” said Cherie Copithorne-Barnes, Chair of the CRSB and a producer west of Calgary, Alberta. “We realize that the sustainability of the Canadian beef industry reaches many stakeholders and we want to ensure all perspectives are taken into account.” 

All comments will be reviewed, and a written response to each comment will be posted on the organization’s website following the consultation. The second draft of the indicators will be released for a 30-day public comment period in mid-2016.   

The CRSB has 80 member organizations and includes stakeholders beyond the farmgate in retail and food service.
