Sustainability criteria for biofuels

Standards New Zealand has submitted a positive vote to International Organization for Standardization (ISO), supporting the proposal for ISO to develop sustainability criteria for biofuels.   The vote was secured following email consultation with a wide range of New Zealand stakeholders.  We aimed to ensure that the vote was established taking account of all interests concerned at the national level. 

We received an overwhelming response that New Zealand does want this international Standard to go ahead, and does want to participate in its development.  Results of the ballot are expected in early 2009.
