  • To accelerate the transition towards a sustainable and bio-based circular economy, businesses must make bold investment decisions in shifting to new feedstocks and technologies. However, the multitude of policies evolving in different sectors – such as aviation, chemicals, consumer goods and shipping – makes decision-making complex.


    The Sustainable Biomass Policy Platforms provides a central place to bring together all those who are impacted by the complex policy landscape to build knowledge and expertise on matters that most impact them, while also developing white papers and positions to advance consistent best-in-class sustainability into the policy arena.

  • The Sustainable Biomass Policy Platform is conducting the following initial scoping activities since its launch on 28th November 2022. This area will be updated soon.

    1. Identifying key geographies and policy landscapes for focus
    2. Identifying knowledge gaps the are currently stalling progress in business-level decision-making
    3. Identifying key outputs that this platform can contribute to overcome barriers
  • RSB’s multi-stakeholder membership community is here to support organisations — including industry, civil society, academia and government — to create a just and sustainable transition towards a net-zero carbon, bio-based circular economy by:

    1. Developing new knowledge and solutions

    2. Sharing wisdom in a pre-competitive space

    3. Shaping revisions to the standard and certification system
