Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO)

Hand Holding Nozzle Fuel with Technology Icons Concept

The Department for Transport placed an obligation on suppliers of transport fuels to demonstrate that a proportion of the fuel they supply comes from renewable sources.

This obligation, known as the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles, ultimately supporting the Government’s target of net zero by 2050.

Transport Covered Under the RTFO

The RTFO aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from fuels supplied for use in:

  • Road vehicles
  • Non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) for example agricultural plant (including inland waterway vessels which do not normally operate at sea)
  • Tractors
  • Recreational craft that do not normally operate at sea

By partnering with SGS for your RTFO verification, you benefit from our extensive experience in auditing and verification.

We will help you to ensure you have met the sustainability criteria and that you comply with your UK biofuels obligations, thereby demonstrating your acceptance of the directive and reaping the benefits of compliance.
