International Beef Alliance

Position of IBA on COP21 Climate Change meeting in Paris


The beef industry is actively engaged in reducing environmental footprints, including GHG emissions, through improvements in health programs, sustainable production and innovation.

The International Beef Alliance, previously the Five Nations Beef Alliance, represents beef producers from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Paraguay and The United States. The Alliance represents approximately 48% of beef production in the world.

Sustainable beef production is a high priority for the IBA. At the Alliance’s recent annual conference in Mexico, each member described its efforts to improve sustainability of beef production in its country. Sustainable beef production is defined as meeting the growing global demand for beef by balancing environmental responsibility, economic opportunity and social diligence. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is an important part of each country’s sustainability efforts.
