RSB Impact Assessment Guidelines

TwitterLinkedInFacebookGoogle GmailGoogle BookmarksShare

The RSB Standard includes several normative documents, which describe the requirements to be met by operators for a sustainable and traceable production of biomass and its derivatives.

In order to support and guide you through the compliance process, the RSB developed specific tools and guidelines, which describe the activities to be undertaken and practices to be implemented by operators to meet RSB requirements. RSB Guidelines are particularly helpful through the impact assessment process required under RSB Principle 2. Following the completion of the Screening Exercise, you may be required to conduct in-depth impact assessment on certain aspects such as soil, water or food security.

The RSB Guidelines are your best supporting documentation through this process!
