Defining Sustainability

Environmentally Sound. Socially Responsible. Economically Viable.

We define sustainable beef as a socially responsible, economically viable and environmentally sound product that prioritizes the Planet, People, Animals and Progress.

The CRSB has adopted the same five guiding principles as set by the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef for its work in Canada.
