The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) has today announced that 300 organisations now currently hold SBP certificates. The organisations have been certified in accordance with the SBP certification system, which provides assurance that woody biomass is sourced from legal and sustainable sources.
Carsten Huljus, SBP Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This is an important milestone for SBP. Our purpose is to facilitate the economic, environmentally and socially responsible management of biomass resources to enable climate goals to be met.
“Our Certificate Holders are spread across 30 countries and last year nearly 12 million tonnes of biomass were produced and sold with an SBP claim.”
SBP Certificate Holders are either Biomass Producers, Traders, or the End-users of SBP- certified biomass, such as large-scale utilities producing heat and power. A list of Certificate Holders may be viewed at: http://www.sbp-cert.org/approvals-and-certifications/certificate-holders. The SBP claim enables End-users to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements for biomass.
