What We Do

Trusted Solutions for a New World®

The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) is a global, multi-stakeholder independent organisation that drives the development of a new world bioeconomy through sustainability solutions, certification, and collaborative partnerships

It provides tools and solutions that mitigate business risk and contribute to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and has the world’s most trusted, peer-reviewed, global certification standard for sustainable biomaterials, biofuels and biomass production.

The RSB Principles

Make sure you cover all sustainability issues with the RSB Principles.

The RSB Principles & Criteria describe how to produce biomass, biofuels and biomaterials in an environmentally, socially and credible way.

Measuring our impact

RSB's 2016 Annual Review

2016 was a year of notable successes for the RSB. We launched a new set of advisory services that were very well received by key players in the aviation and other sectors looking to reduce their emissions using biomass for energy. The Principles and Criteria have been revised and approved, new participating operators and members have joined us and there have been further developments in the RSB Standard. With support from the Boeing Corporate Citizenship program and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), Switzerland., the RSB has developed a programme to support smallholders in several regions of the world. These are just some of the achievements you will read about in the complete Annual Review.

Testimonial
