Working Towards a Sustainable World

Sustainability in the ways we produce and consume is critical to fight climate change and of ever-growing importance to companies, regulators, NGOs and the broader public. However, ensuring sustainability across products, markets and supply chains can be challenging, given the wide variety of different feedstocks, production processes, market requirements and consumer preferences. Credible certification can help to achieve this.

Supporting Sustainability Through Certification

Our vision is to create a world without deforestation, a truly circular economy and a sustainable bioeconomy that minimises waste production. Sustainable agriculture that protects high-biodiversity and high-carbon lands and respects human, labour and land rights will contribute to this vision. In doing so, we aim to develop a resilient economic system and mitigate climate change.

Therefore ISCC certification is based on the six ISCC Principles, which must be met and are consistent with many of the Sustainable Development Goals, set by the United Nations. This way, ISCC supports companies to act more responsibly. With specific guidance for audits and their preparation, ISCC facilitates the correct implementation of its sustainability requirements and allows sustainable production of various feedstocks across continents.

To move towards a carbon-neutral world, we furthermore need to incentivize the use of products and practices that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Through consistent greenhouse gas calculations across product life cycles including their robust auditing and verification, ISCC ensures that GHG information is credible. This, in turn, leads to investment in practices that reduce emissions.
