This roundtable will follow the example of the Beef Industry: the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB), a multi-stakeholder initiative with representation across the value chain in production and consumption.
The goal is to achieve a production that is environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically viable, achieved by continuous improvement in sustainability, through leadership, science, multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration.
The concept is to develop principles and criteria to define sustainable production. These are used by national or country round tables and then benchmarks these national initiatives.
Possible principles that can be taken into account for the GRSE are:
- Animal health
- Human health
- Natural resources
- Animal welfare
