CRSB Seeks Feedback on Sustainability Indicators for Beef Processing. 60-day Consultation Open June 29 – August 29, 2017
The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) has launched a 60-day public consultation to solicit feedback on its sustainability indicators for beef processing to ensure sustainability challenges and opportunities for this sector are addressed.
The consultation runs from June 29 to August 29, 2017. All relevant materials can be found at http://crsb.ca/public-consultation-english. Comments will be reviewed, and written responses to each comment will be summarized in a report posted on the CRSB website following the consultation.
Following refinement, a subsequent 30-day round of consultation is expected this fall.
Since 2014, the CRSB has worked collaboratively through its multi-stakeholder membership to promote sustainability across the beef industry. Developing a verification framework is part of this work, and the indicators reflect what will be measured to verify sustainable practices. With the completion of public consultation on sustainability indicators for beef production completed earlier this year, the focus has shifted to indicators for beef processing. Note that the current scope of the indicators applies to primary processors only.
