Our services and quality systems


Sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in our society. Sustainable products contribute less to CO2 emissions, strengthen biodiversity or are produced with the well-being of humans and animals of paramount importance. An ISCC certificate shows that you take sustainability seriously and act to increase the integrity of the quality system.


What is ISCC?

ISCC is an international certification system that can be applied to demonstrate sustainability and CO2 reduction for all kinds of bio-raw materials and bioenergy.

According to the European Renewable Energy Directive (2009/28/EU), bio-raw materials used as biofuels or bio-energy must be produced sustainably. The directive provides for a set of rules to limit negative consequences. Germany was the first EU member to include the European directive into national legislation, other member states have since followed. This legislation applies to all bio-raw materials used for biofuel or bioenergy, from January 2011.

ISCC offers a chain approach to guarantee the sustainability of the production chain of biofuels, food and feed. By complying with the ISCC (EU or PLUS) standards, your company also complies with sustainability legislation.
