Drax CEO Will Gardiner steps down as board member of Sustainable Biomass Program
April 10, 2023
Will Gardiner has stepped down from his role as a board member of the Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP).
The SBP is a vital part of the sustainable biomass industry, providing an independent certification scheme for woody biomass used in large-scale energy production. Suppliers can use the SBP certification scheme to evidence the sustainability and legality of their biomass and certify it as meeting robust sustainability criteria.
Will has served in a personal capacity on the board of the SBP since January 2019, over which time the organisation has worked to facilitate the economically, environmentally and socially responsible use of biomass around the world.
Drax welcomes the forthcoming updates to the SBP's certification framework and will continue to engage with the SBP and its other stakeholders to ensure best practice is applied and championed across its global supply chains and wider industry.
Drax is the second largest producer of sustainable biomass globally, and the UK's largest source of renewable power by output.
