International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a certification system for the biomass and biofuel production chain whose key purposes are to protect the biosphere, ensure social sustainability and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It makes it possible to monitor greenhouse gas emission levels on an on-going basis in all stages of production, i.e. growing, harvesting, storing, processing and delivery of the product to the end customer.
The ISCC system covers all kinds of biomass available on the EU market and elsewhere and specifies the standards and procedures for the production of biofuels and biomass in accordance with the Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources (2009/28/EC).
As far as Südzucker Polska S.A. is concerned, the ISCC system applies to the production of molasses at the Cerekiew, Ropczyce, Strzelin and Strzyżów production facilities.
