What we do

RSB advances the transition to a bio-based and circular economy – creating a world in which climate change has been mitigated, biodiverse ecosystems restored and livelihoods enhanced.

Guided by our sustainability framework, the RSB Principles & Criteria, we do this by leveraging our three core areas:

1) Community – enabling collaboration for greater impact
2) Programmes – building capability to make change happen
3) Certification – providing clarity on best practice

See below to find out how we leverage our three core areas.


We convene stakeholder groups across the private and public sectors, NGOs and academia to define best practices, generate interest for action and drive consensus.

RSB members have exclusive access and opportunities to learn about the latest developments, join RSB events and lead the sustainable biocircular transition.

Advancing the transition to a biocircular economy

What does advancing the just and sustainable transition to a bio-based and circular economy look like?

RSB understands systematic and meaningful transformation to a biocircular economy as a journey of three stages:

1) Innovate: where business visionaries start taking decisive action

2) Build: where collaboration increases as sustainability becomes a differentiator

3) Scale: where critical mass is achieved and an enabling environment is established

RSB’s activities leverage our three core work areas at each stage in the journey of change:
