The Renewable Fuels Agency has issued guidance on how to report the sustainability of biofuels supplied through the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation.
The RTFO requires companies to provide information on a regular basis on the greenhouse gas savings and wider sustainability of the biofuels they provide; the guidance provides the relevant information for companies on how to comply with reporting requirements.
The Government has set performance targets to encourage responsible sourcing and the RFA will publish quarterly and annual reports on the RTFO that include a comparison of company performance against these targets.
The guidance has been developed through the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership and has involved extensive consultation and piloting.
A document describing key changes to the guidance following the piloting and consultation can be also be found on the RFA website.
