Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials Announces Revision Of Principles and Criteria

On November 8, 2016, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) announced its members voted unanimously to publish revised Principles & Criteria that streamline the requirements and make them more user-friendly. The decision was announced at the Annual Assembly of Delegates meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam.

RSB stated the amendments will offer:

A new user-friendly format, enabling easy understanding of how to apply the standard; 

Streamlined and clear impact assessment requirements;

Integration of the GHG calculation requirement with other available measurement tools;

A new approach to measure GHG emissions from forestry operations;

A new requirement that provides a grievance mechanism for workers and local communities; and

The addition of an integrated pest management requirement.

 
The RSB Standard is considered a trusted certification by many U.S. and European regulatory agencies, as it verifies that biomaterials are ethical, sustainable, and credibly-sourced.  As a result, the independent multi-stakeholder collective claims, RSC-certified products receive swift product approval and market access.
