The RSB’s General Assembly and Business Forum 2017 — November 14-16, 2017 — Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
The General Assembly (14&15th November) All of the RSB’s members are invited to attend the General Assembly which offers an opportunity for the chamber members to meet each other and discuss hot topics affecting sustainability across different sectors.
Addressing the theme of “Getting the Bioeconomy to scale” the assembly will provide clarity on global best practice for dealing with waste and residues and bioproducts. The proposals for the revision of the bioproducts standard will offer insight as to how to ‘scale up’ volumes of bio-based feedstocks into supply chains while ensuring ethical and transparent claims for sustainable sourcing.
Revisions to the Articles of Association will streamline the process for amendments to, and the development of, new RSB standards.
We want you to participate in these lively discussions, network and engage in cross sector conversations based on the areas of interest most important to you and your sector or business.
Attending this event is one of the key benefits of being a member of the RSB because it enables integrated engagement and different perspectives and opinions to be shared. Relevant outcomes will be integrated into further development of the world’s most credible sustainability standard.
