Global recognition

RSB’s sustainability framework has been recognised by NGOs, companies, regulators and others around the world as a uniquely robust and practical approach to advancing the biocircular economy.

Each year more and more organisations add their voices in support of RSB and it’s sustainability framework.

See below a list of organisations, including our members, who have contributed to our global recognition as the leading organisation to advance the just and sustainable transition to a biocircular economy.
