What is the CRSB?

The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB) is a collaborative multi-stakeholder community devoted to advancing sustainability in the Canadian beef industry. It achieves this through sustainability benchmarking and a sustainability strategy, a voluntary operation-level certification program and projects that demonstrate, pilot and promote continuous improvement in Canadian beef production.

Its membership includes organizations across the beef value chain and beyond; farmer/rancher associations, academic institutions, processor and processor associations, food and agriculture businesses, non-governmental associations (animal care and environmental organizations), retail and foodservice companies as well as governments and observers.

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.


Advance continuous improvement of Canadian beef industry sustainability through multi-stakeholder engagement, collaboration, communication and science.


That the Canadian beef industry is recognized globally to be economically viable, environmentally sound and socially responsible.
