The RSB is a full member of the ISEAL Alliance which sets Codes of Good Practice for multistakeholder sustainability standards. Compliance with ISEAL requirements is a rigorous process and has only been achieved by a limited number of global sustainability standards such as the Forest Stewardship Council, FairTrade and the Marine Stewardship Council.
The RSB was independently evaluated and found to be in compliance with the ISEAL Standard-Setting Code, which defines effective standard-setting processes and increases the credibility of the standard.
An integral component of the RSB’s approach to implementing the Standard-Setting Code is our unique Chamber governance system. In combination with the decision-making mechanism based on consensus that ensures that the voices of all our stakeholders are heard, users of the standard can be sure that our standard covers all sustainability aspects that matter.
