U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef
The U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (USRSB) is a multi-stakeholder initiative developed to advance, support, and communicate continuous improvement in sustainability of the U.S. beef value chain. The USRSB achieves this through leadership, innovation, multi-stakeholder engagement, and collaboration. USRSB has one mission—to advance, support and communicate continuous improvement of sustainability across the U.S. beef value chain, with emphasis on the following priority indicators:
- Animal Health and Well-Being
- Efficiency and Yield
- Water Resources
- Land Resources
- Air and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Employee Safety and Well-Being
The USRSB is working to advance continuous improvement of the beef supply chain by also developing practice-based Metrics and Sustainability Assessment Guides which will measure progress against the high priority indicators. Our active involvement in this organization shows our commitment to keeping sustainable natural beef on the table.
