Traceability of Sustainable Feedstocks

ISCC PLUS and REDcert² certifications ensure the traceability of the sustainable material flow along the entire value chain. Every chain element up to the production of the final product is certified (chain-of-custody certification), allowing the product to be labelled as sustainably certified to the end consumer. The following is an example of a ISCC PLUS certified supply chain.

Products without rainforest deforestation

Ecologically and socially responsible Raw Materials

Chain-of-custody certification guarantees that raw material sources are certified sustainable. Certified waste streams are audited to ensure that they are not intentionally produced or contaminated to be considered waste. Certain sustainability requirements apply to the agriculture of arable crops, including:

  • Protection of areas with high carbon stocks (e.g. rainforests, peat bogs) and with high biodiversity.

  • Sustainable management to protect soils and waters

  • Respect for human rights
