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.
- Support the harmonisation of sustainability certification schemes (SCS) and business-to-business (B2B) labels.
- Tracing sustainability impacts along value chains and trades in the bio-based systems for B2B communication to enable responsible production and consumption.
- Develop a fit-for-purpose monitoring system to assess the effectiveness and robustness of existing SCS and labels in supporting achievement of sustainability targets and enabling transparent traceability in global trade flows.
