The RSB supports the development of sustainable alternative fuels for the aviation industry that promote social and environmental sustainability and safeguard food security. We do this by partnering with aviation biofuel initiatives worldwide, engaging airlines through membership, and helping supply chain companies achieve RSB certification for their bio-based fuels.
The aviation industry has committed to grow carbon-neutrally as of 2020, and to decrease GHG emissions by 50% by 2050.
We are working with the industry to achieve these goals – and to ensure that these developments have sustainability at their heart.
Improve fleet fuel efficiency
by 1.5% per year from now until 2020.
Stabilise net aviation emissions at 2020 levels with carbon neutral growth.
By 2050, net aviation carbon emissions will be half what they were in 2005.
The RSB’s pioneering approach drives continuous improvement and adaptation to new market challenges and opportunities. With credible solutions, innovative and advanced approaches to the latest sustainability challenges and a proven track record in supporting the industry, we are delivering clear benefits and value to partners across the aviation supply chain.
The development of our Standard for Advanced Fuels ensures that producers of non-traditional alternative aviation fuels – such as those produced from fossil fuel waste – are able to achieve RSB’s rigorous sustainability certification.
This approach is supporting the aviation industry to overcome many of the challenges associated with 1st generation biofuels – such as ILUC and GHG emissions, biodiversity and food security – and supports innovative solutions For the next generations of sustainable alternative aviation fuels.
RSB’s progressive ILUC module is the first to address the challenges associated with indirect land use change in biomass production and is available ahead of new regulations coming into force in the EU and beyond.
RSB is well aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and our partners in the aviation industry can be assured that RSB-certified alternative aviation fuels are contributing to the realisation of many of the SDGs.
By 2030, the RSB will have supported the emergence of a new world bioeconomy founded on social, economic and environmental considerations that contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals – reducing climate impacts, enhancing food security and rural development, and protecting ecosystems.
