RSB will recognize FSC certified forests

March 6, 2013 |

In Switzerland, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) announced its decision to recognize the standard of the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) which certifies responsibly managed forests. As RSB and FSC standards are aligned on most sustainability aspects, FSC certified forests and operators will now be able to access biofuel and bioenergy markets by receiving RSB certification through a simplified audit process to demonstrate compliance, therefore saving costs and time. This process will enhance the development of advanced biofuel pathways by increasing the supply of sustainable forestry products and ligno-cellulosic material to biofuel and bioenergy producers.
