The RSB is helping to lead the transformation of the aviation industry.
The aviation industry has ambitious targets to reduce its overall carbon footprint by 2050, and this is driving innovation in the biofuels arena as producers and refiners will be called upon to work more closely together.
The RSB Standard offers a critical lever for transformation towards a more sustainable planet and economy and is recognised as the best-in-class certification standard for sustainable biomaterials by leading NGO’s like WWF, IUCN and the NWF.
Airline partners like Boeing and Airbus trust that the RSB standard can help mitigate business risk in the biofuels sector and there is optimism that the technology available, combined with the RSB’s sustainability principles will guide the future of biofuel projects.
The RSB offers trusted, credible tools and solutions for sustainability & biomaterials certification that mitigate business risk, fuel the bioeconomy and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to enable the protection of ecosystems and the promotion of food security.
