CALGARY -  A 30-day public consultation was launched on October 5, and runs to November 4th, as the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) moves forward on creating sustainability indicators for beef processing.
The relevant material can be found on the CRSB website, with comments to be reviewed and summarize on the CRSB website at the conclusion of the consultation.
As part of the Verified Sustainable Beef Framework, the roundtable is developing, a series of sustainability indicators which reflect what will be measured to evaluate sustainable practices across the beef value chain.
An initial consultation this summer, with feedback from diverse perspectives, shows that the indicators for beef processing have been refined, and the roundtable is now seeking additional input on the updated draft. 
 Along with verification protocols, chain of custody guidelines and sustainability claims, the final production and processing indicators will form part of the Verified Sustainable Beef Framework to be launched this December.
As a multi-stakeholder initiative, the CRSB was initiated to enhance sustainability with the Canadian beef industry and is setting the framework for production and sourcing of verified sustainable beef in the country.
