IDB Biofuels Sustainability Scorecard
The Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Initiative (SECCI) and the Structured and Corporate Finance Department (SCF) of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) have created the IDB Biofuels Sustainability Scorecard based on the sustainability criteria of the Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB). The primary objective of the Scorecard is to encourage higher levels of sustainability in biofuels projects by providing a tool to think through the range of complex issues associated with biofuels. Since the scientific debate around these issues continues to evolve, the Scorecard should be seen as a work-in-progress and will continue to be updated and revised as needed. Comments can be submitted at the end of filling out the Scorecard.
Please review the following general guidance for completing the Scorecard prior to beginning to fill it out.
Disclaimer: Neither completion, submission, nor acceptance of this Scorecard implies that the project is eligible for financing by the IDB or that financing by the IDB will be provided. The IDB will verify the results of the Scorecard for eligible projects during the loan due diligence process. Scoring well on the Scorecard should not be considered as an indication that the project will pass RSB’s biofuels certification when it becomes available.
