What is the RSB?

The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) is a global membership organisation that drives the just and sustainable transition to a bio-based and circular economy.

RSB’s sustainability framework has been developed by its multi-stakeholder membership, and is a uniquely robust and credible foundation for supporting innovative solutions to the climate crisis. RSB uses this foundation to develop projects, new knowledge and solutions that equip key decision-makers to deliver net positive impacts for people and the planet.
