12th Regional Stakeholder Meeting North America

14 November 2023, Hybrid Meeting, Online & New Orleans

The recently concluded hybrid event, witnessed a substantial turnout, with over 110 participants engaging online and an additional 70 attendees present onsite in the vibrant city of New Orleans, LA.

The Stakeholder Meeting delved into three key topics pertinent to the North American Market: While the first block was dedicated to EU Regulations and biofuels, the second session gave valuable insights on low fossil emissions, land use change, and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production. The final segment concentrated on the potential and challenges posed to the circular economy and bioeconomy and how ISCC PLUS certification and the ISCC Licensing Scheme can help to take the next step shifting towards circularity and making respective claims. The meeting fostered meaningful discussions with the audience during the Q&A sessions, as well as during the networking lunch and reception.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to all attendeeswith a special acknowledgment to our esteemed speakers. Additionally, we express our gratitude to all our sponsorsSCS Global Services, the UIC Energy Resources Center, and Control Union (United States).
