RSB’s CORSIA Certification is for use by feedstock producers, refineries and traders globally to certify CORSIA-eligible Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF).
The Standard was recognised by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in December 2020 and specifies requirements for operators along the supply chain to produce SAF that is eligible under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), and complies with RSB’s sustainability requirements – thus allowing aviation leaders to make powerful claims on GHG reductions and other important sustainability aspects such as food security, environmental protection and human rights.
Through the RSB CORSIA Standard, we support the sector leaders to demonstrate they are at the forefront of driving sustainability and decarbonisation of this vital industry.
The RSB CORSIA Certification enables the certification of SAF made from:
- Primary biomass (e.g. oil or sugar crops, energy grasses)
- Biomass from end-of-life products and production residues (e.g. Used Cooking Oil, agricultural and forestry residues, animal fats)
- Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)
Operators can also opt to certify for CORSIA eligibility only (non-RSB), meaning that they will be required to prove compliance against the two CORSIA sustainability criteria only (greenhouse gases and carbon stock). SAF certified this way will only carry the CORSIA claim, and will not benefit from the additional sustainability impact and claims provided by achieving full RSB CORSIA certification.
