Abstract:The following document lays out principles, which set goals for all participants in the life-cycle of biodiesel fuel. The principles are followed by baseline practices. The baseline practices are intended to set the threshold for where sustainability begins. Over the next year, as the SBA gathers information from the implementation of the practices through pilot programs and participating SBA members, we will be developing sustainability standards and indicators with which to measure them. These standards will ultimately serve as the criteria for SBA certification.
