ISCC PLUS is a sustainability certification program for bio-based and circular (recycled) raw materials for all markets and sectors not regulated as transportation fuels under the European Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED) or Fuel Quality Directive (FQD), which are covered under the ISSC EU certification scheme. 

With a focus on the traceability of raw materials within the supply chain, broad applications of the ISCC Plus standard include circular and bio-based materials such as plastics, food ingredients, animal feed, chemicals and bioenergy, as well as additional technical substances and other areas where the practical use of biomass exists. The ISCC PLUS certification scheme includes the sustainability and traceability criteria of all types of agricultural and forestry raw materials, such as crops and wood used in the production of biofuel. The ISCC PLUS scheme is becoming the globally recognized standard for the recovery of waste and residues that provide the feedstocks for circular plastics, chemical intermediates, and therefore a wide variety of consumer facing products like packaging, housewares, toys, etc.

SCS’ independent third-party ISCC PLUS certification ensures that your company complies with globally recognized ecological and social sustainability requirements, voluntary greenhouse gas emissions reductions and traceability throughout your supply chain.  An ISCC PLUS certification through SCS is provides entry into the Circular Economy.
