RSB receives positive assessment to Implementing Regulation under EU RED
RSB is delighted to confirm its positive assessment by the EU Commission to Implementing Regulation 2022/996 under the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED).
This applies from 30th December 2023 and contains major updates to the EU RED system, covering topics such as soil carbon accumulation, information-sharing, audit, traceability, GHG emissions and more.
Later this month, RSB will host a webinar for its membership and certification network to share these changes.
The EU Renewable Energy Directive
The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) is the legal framework for the development of clean energy across all sectors of the EU economy, supporting cooperation between EU countries towards this goal.
Since 2011, RSB has been recognised for its RSB EU RED certification. And in 2022, the EU Commission’s Committee on the Sustainability of Biofuels, Bioliquids and Biomass Fuels voted to approve RSB’s EU RED system under the recast RED II regulations. For more information, read here.
The recent positive assessment to the latest Implementing Regulation under the EU RED demonstrates RSB’s continued commitment to ensuring that the EU’s clean energy transition is underpinned by rigorous and robust social and environmental sustainability requirements.
