Sustainability has many faces and a common understanding is hard to come by at times. This conference series brings people together to formulate a path forward.
2014 Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef

Charlie Arnot, Chief Executive Officer, Center for Food Integrity, talks about building the trust between agriculture/food companies and consumers. Mr. Arnot shares how building a social license to operate is key for companies to sustain that trust.

Mr. Arnot also covers what happens when companies loose the trust and regulation is implanted to "fix" the social license and trust shield. Mr. Arnot suggests that companies need to begin their public engagement, open their digital doors, and commit to an online and in person engagement culture throughout.

This panel discussion with Dr. Marty Matlock (University of Arkansas), Dr. Kim Stackhouse (National Cattlemen's Beef Association), Brian Lindsay (SAI Platform), and Karin Kreider (Executive Director, ISEAL Alliance) addresses challenges in sustainable beef. Two of them: 1) how to develop sustainability indicators and, 2) what is the role of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef.

Brian Lindsay, Project Leader, Beef Working Group, explains what the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform is about and how it developed. The collaboration group was created in 2002 by the food industry to promote sustainable agriculture worldwide. Mr. Lindsay shares how the definition of sustainability was developed and what members do to help support the initiative. Mr. Lindsay concludes with an outline of the SAI timeline and goals.
