CRSB Launches Review and Update of the Certified Sustainable Beef Framework


Source: Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef


When it launched in 2017, the CRSB committed to reviewing the CRSB Certified Sustainable Beef Framework every five years. As part of its review and update, CRSB has engaged Wilton Consulting Group to conduct the stakeholder engagement portion of the project.

We are looking for feedback on what aspects of the Framework work well and what could be optimized. We want stakeholders to share their thoughts on emerging trends that could influence the effectiveness of the program. Over the course of the consultations between now and September 2021, there will be several opportunities to participate in the process, through stakeholder interviews, interactive workshops and surveys, that will help to refine draft recommendations.

Along with these stakeholder engagement activities, NSF International is also conducting standard-to-standard and program-to-program level benchmarking comparisons. The results of this analysis will be presented at the workshop on June 16.

As part of the CRSB’s commitment to continual improvement, regular review of the Framework will maintain the Canadian beef sector’s position as a global leader in sustainability, as part of the thriving, resilient food system.
