  • SMF will play an important role in achieving the shipping sector’s decarbonisation goals. To ensure that SMF production and use is developed in a consistent, just and sustainable manner, relevant stakeholders need to come together to understand what lessons came be learnt from other sectors and from each other.


    The RSB Sustainable Marine Fuel Platform will provide a place for these stakeholders to convene and collaboratively discuss important topics around SMF, sustainability certification, and consistent LCA methodologies.

  • The RSB Sustainable Marine Fuel Platform is conducting the following initial scoping activities in Q1 2023:

    1. Scoping requirements and activities for the SMF Platform workplan
    2. Learning sessions on sustainability criteria, PTX, Book & Claim and other topics to support ongoing learning
    3. Initial virtual meeting in February 2023, and a launch meeting on 22-23 March 2023 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
  • 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

    All RSB platforms and working groups are conducted in-line with our anti-trust policy and follow an established anti-trust procedure to ensure that our work is in line with best practice in competition law.
