SBP invites stakeholders to join new Stakeholder Advisory Group

The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) has issued a "call for action" to all SBP stakeholders inviting them to register their interest in becoming a member of the new Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG). The role of the Stakeholder Advisory Group is to provide a platform for stakeholder input and advice to support the work of the SBP Standards Committee in the development, implementation and maintenance of SBP standards and related documents.

During the USIPA 2018 conference in October 2018, Carsten Huljus, CEO, Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) explained that SBP expected to announce a multi-stakeholder governing board before the end of the year.

On January 18, 2019, Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) Chief Executive Officer, Carsten Huljus, issued a “call for action” to all SBP stakeholders inviting them to register their interest in becoming a member of the new Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG).

Following the success of the SBP Stakeholder Committee that was in operation from 2016 to 2018, we are keen to maintain a formal link with our stakeholders and harness their views and support. Stakeholder engagement with our many and diverse stakeholders is an essential part of our operations. I am issuing an invitation to all our stakeholders to register their interest in serving on the Stakeholder Advisory Group, said Carsten Huljus.

According to Huljus, the role of the new Stakeholder Advisory Group is to provide a platform for stakeholder input and advice to support the work of the SBP Standards Committee in the development, implementation and maintenance of SBP standards and related documents. As well as other relevant activities towards furthering SBP’s development as a biomass certification system and making SBP an “efficient and effective” organisation.

The number of members of the Stakeholder Advisory Group is unlimited, although only one representative from each organisation/institution will be permitted. In November 2018, SBP revealed the nominated, new members of the SBP Board that will take up their positions in January 2019.
