The International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) is an international system for certifying biomass and bioenergy, specially the entire biofuel supply chain. It incorporates sustainability criteria such as reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable use of land, protection of natural biospheres and social sustainability. Wilmar is also diligently pursuing ISCC and some of Wilmar’s plantations, mills, refineries and biodiesel plants are now certified against the ISCC standards.
The achievement of ISCC certification signifies that the Group’s relevant products comply with the strict sustainability criteria set by the European Union’s Renewable Energy Directive.
Wilmar first started pursuing ISCC in 2011. As of early 2015, 27 of the Group’s sites were certified. Certification of further sites will be determined based on commercial considerations.
