Leadership

The framework of the GRSB consists of six constituencies: producers and producer associations, the commerce and processing sector, retail companies, civil societies, allied industry initiatives and national or regional roundtables. The possibility to participate as an observer member also exists.

Of the general assembly, 20 members make up the Board of Directors; and six positions assemble the executive committee, which consists of a president, vice president, secretary-treasurer, and two at-large members and past president.

Committees to cover the workings of the roundtable itself are formed from the membership and include Finance, Membership, Global Goals Development and Communications Committees. 

The board creates the technical working groups and guides their scope of work. It is through these working groups that most of the GRSB’s work is accomplished. Some of the industry’s issues that the working groups are examining and seeking solutions include deforestation, a life cycle assessment, beef sustainability issue scan and harmonization, sustainability supplier survey and the planning of global conferences.
