The RSB is recognized as a global leader for integrity and thoroughness in ensuring the sustainability of biomass, biofuels and biomaterials production. The RSB trademark is a guarantee for sustainable production, including the respect for human rights, food security and the environment as well as a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

RSB developed a Monitoring & Evaluation System in order to determine whether our desired long-term goals are on a path to achievement. In 2015, RSB successfully undertook an independent evaluation against the Code of Good Practice for Assessing the Impacts of Social and Environmental Standards (Impacts Code) that demonstrated overall compliance with the comprehensive requirements of the ISEAL Alliance.

Public System Report

The Public System Report summarizes how our RSB Monitoring & Evaluation system is working. It describes the short-term, mid-terms and long-term effects the RSB is expected to drive in terms of contributing to developing a sustainable bio-based economy.
