UPM Biofuels is proud to be RSB EU RED-certified. All our products are covered by Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) EU RED certification. RSB certifies the sourcing chain for raw materials as well as the sustainability and reliability of manufacturing based on 12 principles approved by several stakeholders, such as NGOs and UN representatives.
These principles cover such aspects as greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, human rights, and social and environmental responsibility across the entire production chain. RSB EU RED is also one of the voluntary schemes approved by the European Commission for verifying that biofuels comply with European Union sustainability criteria.
Besides RSB EU RED, we also have an RSB Advanced products certificate. This is a new standard system which has an important role in supporting the development of both a circular and bio-based economy. RSB Advanced provides sustainability requirements and criteria for non-energy products including packaging, plastics and textiles.
