Projects Pillar

crsb pillars 3Part of the CRSB’s mandate is to communicate and share sustainability projects that help advance the continuous improvement for sustainability of the Canadian beef industry. The Projects Pillar is focused on building a stronger and more united beef sustainability community by increasing awareness of sustainable beef production. These projects should advance the ten goals from the National Beef Sustainability Assessment and Strategy.


Letters of Support

CRSB does not fund research, but provides letters of support for research initiatives that is aligned with the CRSB Research Priorities. These priorities are focused on filling the Canadian specific knowledge and data gaps for the update of the National Beef Sustainability Assessment (NBSA) in 2021-23.

The Sustainability Projects Inventory is a database of completed and ongoing projects from CRSB members and non-members that align with the ten goals from the National Beef Sustainability Assessment and Strategy. These sustainability projects are designed to demonstrate, pilot or promote sustainability practices. Note that these are not research projects; information on beef research projects can be found at
