The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef is conducting a Sustainability Assessment on all three pillars of sustainability – environment, social and economic. This study will enhance our ability to communicate to consumers domestically and internationally about the environmental and social benefits of Canada’s beef industry. It will also inform stakeholders about what areas require additional research and focus. Hotspots and threats to the industry will be identified and a strategy developed to monitor progress and communicate how industry is addressing consumer concerns.
We would greatly appreciate your assistance with this project by completing the survey. The survey has two components. The environmental stream (attached in excel and pdf format) relates to production activities with emphasis on energy and natural resources consumption. The socioeconomic stream, which will be shared with you at a secondary stage, relates to the number of employees, animal welfare practices, and food safety. Please note the deadline for the Environmental Survey is January 6th, 2015.
The data reported in it will not be shared with any other individual or entity and will be only used for this study. The results from the survey will validate information collected from a literature review. Individual operation information will NOT be identifiable in the final results as it will be aggregated.
