In June 2007, the Steering Board of the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) published draft principles for sustainable biofuels production, as the basis for a global stakeholder discussion around requirements for sustainable biofuels. Interested stakeholders were invited to join Working Group and suggest criteria for achieving these principles, as well as rewording for the draft principles themselves. Over the past twelve months, stakeholders have discussed the criteria in about fifty Working Group and Expert Group teleconferences; four in-person stakeholder meetings in Brazil, China, South Africa, and India (totalling 200 participants); on-line via the Bioenergy Wiki; and via direct e-mails and phone calls to the Secretariat at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). The resulting draft standard – principles and criteria, along with key elements of the guidance for implementation – is presented in the following pages.
