RSB submits application for CORSIA recognition
The Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) has announced that it has formally submitted its application to be recognised as a sustainability certification scheme under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).
According to a statement, RSB developed and submitted an adaptation of its main global standard, as well as 10 other adapted procedural and standard documents which together describe how alternative aviation fuel producers and supply chains can comply with both RSB and CORSIA.
As the industry looks towards a green recovery from the global COVID-19 crisis, a robust and credible sustainability standard will be key to guide investment and strategy. RSB’s approach enables committed airlines to go above and beyond the CORSIA requirements to create genuine positive impacts and ensure that the development of alternative fuels does not lead to “unintended consequences for people and the planet.”
The submission is a “big step in a process that has seen RSB work to adapt its best-in-class sustainability standard to incorporate the requirements of this new mechanism to support the aviation industry’s transition to carbon-neutral growth” the statement said.
