Governance and people

The SBP Board is the key governing body and is responsible for overseeing the implementation of SBP’s objective to promote and maintain internationally, an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable biomass supply chain through the development and operation of an independent, third-party certification system. As well as setting the overall strategy, direction and budget for the organisation.

The Standards Committee is responsible for all decision-making concerning certification system standard-setting and the provision of views, advice and recommendations on the operation of SBP to the Board, other SBP Committees and the SBP Secretariat.

The Technical Committee is responsible for, amongst other things, providing advice to the Board on SBP’s technical and scientific functions, including but not limited to SBP’s certification and accreditation criteria and methodologies.

The day-to-day running of SBP is carried out by the Secretariat.
