ISEAL is the global membership organisation for ambitious, collaborative and transparent sustainability systems. It drives collective efforts to tackle the most pressing sustainability issues and create a world where markets are a force for good. RSB is a proud ISEAL Code Compliant member, meaning that we have demonstrated compliance with ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice on Standard Setting, Assurance and Impact for effective and credible sustainability systems.

ISEAL supports sustainability systems and their partners in delivering solutions to critical global challenges, so that companies and governments can meet their sustainability commitments and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It drives improvement by defining credible practice; convening forums for collaboration, sharing of experience, and collective action; delivering expertise, advice and training; and facilitating and promoting innovation to strengthen sustainability systems.

ISEAL’s Community Members are sustainability standards and similar systems that collaborate to scale and demonstrate positive impact. Its Code Compliant members go further, adhering to ISEAL’s Codes of Good Practice – a globally recognised framework for best practice.

RSB has been an ISEAL Code Compliant Member since 2015. We have worked closely with ISEAL and its community on a number of projects, including:

Blockchain database for sustainable biofuels project – this project explores, tests and reports on the opportunities that blockchain can offer to sustainability certifications and their commercial partners, using the sustainable biofuels industry as a case study.

FPIC360° Project – a joint project between Equitable Origin (EO) and RSB, the project has created the FPIC-360° tool for monitoring and verifying Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) within biomaterials farming practises.

RSB works with ISEAL to ensure that we are continuously improving and implementing the very highest levels of credible practice in our sustainability standard.
