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 a Working Group and suggest criteria for achieving these principles, as well as rewording for the draft principles themselves. After considerable stakeholder consultation the RSB released "Version Zero" of the draft Principles & Criteria for Sustainable Biofuels in August 2008 for a further six-month period of public consultation. The present report details the "Version One" of the RSB Principles & Criteria, including both minimum and progress requirements. Given the tremendous outreach and stakeholder consultation, the RSB Steering Board believes the Standard should be considered a collaborative work of numerous and diverse interested parties. Throughout the consultative process, the RSB has remained committed to an equitable, open and transparent standard-setting process, following the ISEAL Code of Good Practice for Setting Social and Environmental Standards- and involving stakeholder interests from many different countries and from all parts of the supply chain.
