ISCC was developed through an open multi-stakeholder process
International associations, corporations, research institutions and NGOs from around the world have been involved in the development of ISCC in order to meet high demands regarding social and ecological sustainability as well as to ensure high practicality and cost effectiveness.
- 250+ stakeholders developed ISCC
- ISCC association with currently 175+ members
- Continuous stakeholder dialogue with 100+ events
- Regional and technical stakeholder committees in Europe, Asia/Pacific, North America and South America
The ISCC Association (ISCC e.V.) is the legally registered body responsible for governing ISCC, for guiding the strategic decisions taken by ISCC and for unifying and representing ISCC’s stakeholders. Natural or legal persons may become members of the ISCC Association if they share the same goal and mission as ISCC. Members can participate in the organisation and have a voting right.
The General Assembly is the annual meeting of the members held by the ISCC Association, where members of the ISCC Association elect the ISCC Board and discuss and decide on strategically important matters. The ISCC Board represents three different stakeholder groups participating in ISCC:
- Biomass Producers and Processors
- Trade, Logistics and other System Users
- NGOs, Social Sector, Science and Research, Public Sector
The ISCC Board is made up of two representatives of each stakeholder group ensuring equal representation of interests. The ISCC Board may initiate and establish Stakeholder Committees to support ISCC in the handling of specific topics and to facilitate the regional and technical stakeholder dialogue.
The day-to-day operations, management and development of the ISCC system are assigned to the ISCC System GmbH.
Stakeholders of ISCC either have the option to engage with ISCC by becoming members in the ISCC Association, by participating in Stakeholder Committees, the regional and technical stakeholder dialogue, and Working Groups, or by giving feedback to the system through Public Consultation, or directly via email, over the telephone or in person.
