Project STAR4BBS

STAR4BBS aims to maximise the potential of sustainability certification schemes and labels to support a successful transition to a sustainable bio-based economy. The project will develop indicators and a new monitoring system for assessing the effectiveness of existing schemes and labels, and related traceability systems applicable to biological feedstock and bio-based materials and products.

RSB will provide expertise on traceability and in the development of the indicators and will support outreach to industry and other certification schemes and labels.
