ISCC International Sustainability and Carbon Certification
With the development of the industrial and agricultural sector, sustainable development is playing an increasingly important role, so that the company’s production process has the least possible impact and damage to the environment, the extraction of raw materials is traceable, and social sustainability is important. All these aspects are covered by the international sustainability and carbon certification, which serves as a proof of the company’s sustainable performance to customers and partners.
What is International Sustainability and Carbon Certification system?
International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a sustainability certification system for all agricultural and forestry feedstocks and markets. The scheme complies with Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and the Fuel Quality Directive (FQD) of the European Commission.
BM Certification SIA offers compliance audits and certification for international sustainability including best practice and sustainable production in accordance with ISCC PLUS and ISCC EU requirements.
Why certify with the ISCC system?
ISCC system certification helps manufacturers take responsibility and reduces the risk for companies to create environmentally harmful processes. Certification is a reliable method that helps customers identify which companies provide a sustainable supply of agricultural raw materials.
When certifying the ISCC system, you will:
- Promote reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- Ensure the sustainable land use;
- Reassure partners and customers that your company produces and sells sustainable products.
- Promote protection of the natural biosphere.
- Ensure social sustainability.
