About RSB

Who We Are

The RSB has members from a worldwide movement of businesses, NGOs, academics, government and UN organisations that all have the same goal.


  • “WWF is strongly committed to ensuring sustainability in the development of the global bioeconomy, and has been involved in the RSB from its inception. Biofuels and biomaterials represent both an opportunity for a greener development pathway and a risk to environmental integrity. The RSB’s rigorous sustainability criteria are the reason we have chosen to work with them in South Africa, to ensure that the development of aviation biofuel feedstocks safeguards against potential impacts on the environment and provides maximum community benefits.”
