U.S. Beef Industry Sustainability Framework

 

A Year in Review

 

The USRSB is the only organization in America solely focused on the continuous improvement of how U.S. beef is raised, processed and distributed through a multi-stakeholder approach. Since its inception in 2015, the USRSB has achieved unprecedented milestones through the development of the U.S. Beef Industry Sustainability Framework and support of pilot projects and research. Our most immediate efforts moving forward will focus on education, training and outreach. We will continue to explore venues to share our work and opportunities to connect with the value chain, encourage uptake of our Framework and educate consumers about beef. Additionally, we will support pilot projects, research and initiatives that explore individual, voluntary efforts to advance the sustainability of U.S. beef.

Testing Our Ideas

There are still areas of beef sustainability we need to better understand more fully. That is why the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef supports many external projects, field trials, pilots and resources that further advance, support and communicate continuous improvement in the sustainability of the U.S. beef value chain. The following projects included in this booklet have undergone an application and review process to demonstrate the project’s alignment with this mission and have received USRSB support.
