RSB's members are the foundation of our organisation.

RSB members are part of a worldwide movement of businesses, NGO’s, academics, governments and UN organisations that demonstrate their commitment to best practice for sustainable biomaterial, biofuels and biomass production.

This independent organisation unites these global stakeholders and is the most trusted, peer-reviewed member body active in the bioeconomy, which promotes bioproducts that enhance rural development, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote food security.

RSB Member Chambers

RSB members are organised into five Chambers that elect the governing body of the organisation – the Assembly of Delegates. The Assembly appoints a Board of Directors to provide oversight to the Secretariat which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation.

Membership Chambers represent different sectors of business, civil society, trade unions, government, academia and multi-lateral organisations. The Chambers elect representatives to the Assembly of Delegates and Board of Directors.
