Mary-Thomas Hart on the NCBA's Commitment to Climate Neutrality by 2040

Thu, 12 Aug 2021 12:50:39 CDT

Mary-Thomas Hart on the NCBA's Commitment to Climate Neutrality by 2040 Mary-Thomas Hart, environmental counsel at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, talks with Radio Oklahoma's Ron Hays about the NCBA's newly released U.S. cattle industry sustainability goals.

Today, the NCBA solidified U.S. cattle ranchers’ commitment to environmental, economic and social sustainability with the release of U.S. cattle industry sustainability goals.


Beef producers in the United States are already the global leader in sustainable beef production. The setting of these goals will further enhance the sustainability of the U.S. system and set targets that demonstrate to the world that producers are committed to continued improvement. The goals for the U.S. cattle industry include:
• Demonstrate climate neutrality of U.S. cattle production by 2040.
• Create and enhance opportunities that result in a quantifiable increase in producer profitability and economic sustainability by 2025.   
• Enhance trust in cattle producers as responsible stewards of their animals and resources by expanding educational opportunities in animal care and handling programs to further improve animal well-being.
• Continuously improve our industry's workforce safety and well-being.            


These goals are the culmination of a grassroots, rancher-led process. The Sustainability Goals Task Force was formed in 2021 to evaluate the current state of U.S. beef cattle sustainability, determine which improvements are most critical and help share the story of progress. Members of this working group - cattle farmers and ranchers from across the U.S. - led the process and made all decisions, including setting the sustainability goals.
