RFA aims and objectives

The Renewable Fuel Agency’s aim is:

‘To help the UK achieve its renewable transport fuel targets in a sustainable manner.’

The RFA has four objectives:

1. To operate the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO), put in place effective measures to encourage compliance and to publish accurate information on biofuels supplied in the UK under the RTFO.

2. To be a Centre of Excellence in carbon and sustainability (C&S) reporting and standards and provide expert advice and support to the Secretary of State for Transport on biofuels currently or prospectively supplied under the RTFO.

3. To engage with stakeholders on matters relating to RTFO and C&S guidance, in order to encourage in the UK the supply of biofuel which meets sustainability criteria and provide authoritative, accessible advice.

4. To provide value for money and accountability to the Department for Transport (DfT).
