Advancing the transition to a bio-based and circular economy The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) provides collaborative partnerships, innovative solutions and trusted certification for a just and sustainable transition to a net positive world.


A Just Transition to a Net Positive World

We envision the transformation to a circular and bio-based economy, contributing to climate change mitigation, the restoration of ecosystems, and enhancement of livelihoods.

RSB equips global industry, policy makers, and other stakeholders to overcome existing barriers and drive the transition to a bio-based, circular, and net-zero economy with positive impacts for people and the environment.

With the world’s most trusted, peer-reviewed, global sustainability framework, RSB guides sector transformation to bio-based and circular models. The RSB sustainability standard contributes to food security, rural development, and restoration of ecosystems. Based on the Standard, RSB certification ensures responsible, environmentally sustainable, and credibly sourced bio-based and circular solutions.

RSB drives the development of a bio-based and circular economy on a global scale through sustainability solutions, certification, and collaborative partnerships.

It provides tools and solutions that mitigate business risk and contribute to achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and has the world’s most trusted, peer-reviewed, global certification standard for sustainable biomaterials, biofuels and biomass production.
