The member comment period, therefore, needs to start at the beginning of February to allow time for collection of feedback and revision.
The board will be asked to approve release of the drafts for member comment at the January board meeting, which means having all of the draft goals and associated documents ready by Christmas at the latest.
Between now and Christmas, CBI will be leading the process of consultation within each of the three working groups; GHG, Land Conversion & Biodiversity, and Animal
Health and Welfare. Your participation in these groups is always encouraged. Robust participation at this stage will help us reach goals that work for the membership at large.
We will also be involving the communications team at MHP to help with formulation in accessible language and development of a uniform and approachable style.
All consultation meetings with CBI from now on will include translation between Spanish and English, and if there is sufficient demand to add Portuguese alongside, that is also feasible. These meetings will all be listed on the calendar the GRSB website.
