The Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) is a certification system that allows farmers, feedstock processors and biofuel producers to demonstrate that their operations comply with ambitious yet practical safeguards, including, but not limited to, the protection of natural or rare ecosystems, food security, and the respect of human rights to land, water and decent work conditions, and the management of water resources.
The RSB certification system is approved by the European Commission, as proof of compliance with the Renewable Energy Directive or RED (2009/28/EC).
The RSB sustainability standard represents a global consensus of over 130 organizations including farmers, fuel refiners, regulators and NGOs, and is intended to ensure the sustainability of biofuels production practices while streamlining compliance for industry. www.rsbservices.org.
