The Council on Sustainable Biomass Production (CSBP)
CSBP is an organization established in 2007 to develop comprehensive voluntary sustainability standards for the production of biomass and its conversion to bioenergy. CSBP intends for its standard to serve as the foundation for an independent third-party certification program, which will set the emerging bioenergy industry on a course of continuous improvement.
FLA is following this group as it is the position of the association that certification and sustainability principles should not be required for entrance into bioenergy markets.
CSBP has released a draft standard and opened it to public comments. FLA will be submitting comments before the November 9 deadline. If any FLA members would like to submit comments independently, please contact Brendan Davis at (800) 325-2954 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the CSBP website for a copy of this draft standard.
