Sustainability Principles & Criteria available for public comment

The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef has released its draft Principles and Criteria for Global Sustainable Beef for public comment.

The document endeavours to identify the key areas in the beef value chain that must be addressed to ensure beef production around the globe is environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically viable.

Cattle Council of Australia President, Andrew Ogilvie, says “The consultation period will give  producers an opportunity to provide input and comment integral for ensuring that the final Principles and Criteria are workable for the Australian beef industry.”

“Of particular concern to the Cattle Council of Australia is ensuring economic sustainability for the Australian industry. The Australian beef industry is one of the most efficient in the world, but by no means is it the most economically viable.

The Draft Principles and Criteria for Sustainable Beef are available here. The public is invited to provide input and comments to the draft definition until 16 May 2014.

Direct Members of the Cattle Council of Australia will be able to comment directly through the CCA website.
