CRSB Sustainability Indicators for Beef Production

NEWS RELEASE: Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef seeks final public input on sustainability indicators for beef production

February 28, 2017

Since 2015, the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) has worked collaboratively with its multi- stakeholder membership to develop sustainability indicators for beef production in Canada. These indicators are part of a verified sustainable beef framework the organization is developing, and reflect what will be measured to verify sustainable practices on individual beef operations. The CRSB would like to thank all those who participated in the first public consultation on these sustainability indicators.

The CRSB is seeking the public’s final comments on an updated draft of the indicators for beef operations, which have been updated based on feedback from the first draft in 2016. This 30-day public consultation will take place from February 28 to April 1, 2017, and will be the final opportunity for public comment. All relevant materials and instructions can be found at http://crsb.ca/public-consultation-english. All comments will be reviewed, and a written response to each comment will be posted on the CRSB website following the consultation. Additional public consultations will be carried out later this spring on a similar series of indicators for processors, and the CRSB looks forward to your feedback.
