Knowing the Origin of our renewable product is a basis requirement.
The certification systems specify what constitutes as sustainable operations, what their criteria are, and how the functioning of the supply chain should be documented.
Certifications include the EU-compliant ISCC (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification). This scheme is raw material-independent, meaning that diverse raw materials can be certified with it. In the United States, the sustainability of renewable fuels is monitored through the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) sustainability requirements.
Certifications ensure that during production:
Identification and selection of good partners is crucial in regard to the sustainability of the supply chain. Therefore, ensuring the sustainability of our supply chain begins long before any deals have been closed or a drop of raw material delivered.
Knowing the origin of our renewable products is a basic requirement on which we will not compromise. Independent expert parties annually verify that all of the other strict sustainability requirements for renewable products are also followed. We cooperate with our long-term partners in the fields of training and communication, among others.
