The UK implements the Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation (RTFO) in 2008. This Obligation will require companies to sell a minimum of 2.5% renewable transport fuels in the UK in 2008/2009: a percentage which will increase to 5% in 2010/2011. While biofuels are widely promoted for their greenhouse gas reduction potential, there has been an increasing concern about the sustainability of biofuel production. In order to address this concern, it is proposed that the Administrator of the scheme will require companies to report on the sustainability and greenhouse gas performance of the biofuels they sell in the UK. Two projects have been commissioned to recommend the design of a system for the proposed sustainability and carbon reporting. One on carbon reporting and one on sustainability reporting. This document is focussed on sustainability reporting but also contains information which is common to both carbon and sustainability reporting, such as the Chain of Custody.
