SBP accepted as an ISEAL Alliance Community Member
The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP), a certification system designed for woody biomass – mostly wood pellets and woodchips – used in industrial, large-scale energy production, has been accepted by the International Social and Environmental Accreditation and Labelling (ISEAL) Alliance as an ISEAL Alliance Community Member.
"In aspiring to introduce best practice across our operations we have been greatly influenced by ISEAL’s credibility principles and codes," said Carsten Huljus, SBP's CEO.
The ISEAL Alliance is a global membership organization for ambitious, collaborative, and transparent sustainability systems. Through driving collective efforts to tackle the most pressing sustainability issues, ISEAL strives to create a world where markets are a force for good.
To qualify as an ISEAL Community Member, SBP had to demonstrate that it meets a number of exacting eligibility criteria and commit to meeting improvement criteria to maintain Community Member status.
I would like to congratulate the Sustainable Biomass Program on becoming an ISEAL Community Member. This exciting step reflects SBP’s commitment to ongoing improvement and deepening their credible practices as they work to make a net positive contribution to national and international climate goals, said Karin Kreider, Executive Director of ISEAL.
As a Community Member, SBP joins a growing number of well-respected sustainability systems that are driving positive social and environmental change across multiple sectors.
We are delighted to have been accepted as an ISEAL Community Member. In aspiring to introduce best practices across our operations we have been greatly influenced by ISEAL’s credibility principles and codes. We are committed to the continual improvement of all that we do to ensure we deliver an effective and efficient certification system that is accessible to our users and understood by our stakeholders. We look forward to becoming an active participant in the ISEAL community, said Carsten Huljus, CEO of SBP.
