SBP has today announced the appointment of Mihkel Jugaste as a Board Director representing Biomass Producers.

Mihkel has many years’ experience in the biomass sector and, amongst other things, has a thorough understanding of value chain sustainability and the ESG framework.

For the four years from 2019, Mihkel served as a member of the SBP Standards Committee, bringing a valuable perspective to the work of the Committee through his practical knowledge of the implementation of sustainability standards.

Commenting on Mihkel’s appointment, Francis Sullivan, SBP’s independent Chair, said, “I am delighted to welcome Mihkel to the Board of SBP. Mihkel’s knowledge and experience will be extremely valuable to the Board as we closely monitor the roll-out and implementation of our revised Standards. Our Standards are the backbone of what we do and we are committed to their continuous improvement”.

Commenting on his appointment, Mihkel Jugaste said, “I am looking forward to joining the Board of SBP and to contributing to the work of SBP at a strategic level. SBP has exceeded all expectations and reached the highest sustainability credentials in biomass to energy applications. I am enthusiastic to help the organisation in maintaining this level and supporting the evolution of sustainable biomass”.
