International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC)
One of Australia's major canola markets, the European Union (EU), has sustainability requirements for all biomass being used in the production of biofuels. All raw materials used or imported to produce biofuels must be certified as being produced sustainably on a mass balance basis.
Since 2010, CBH Marketing and Trading has been certified to access the EU biofuel market for Australian grown canola through the ISCC EU scheme. Growers who complete the ISCC self-declaration forms online will be paid a premium of $10 per tonne for the canola sold to Marketing and Trading.
ISCC PLUS is for food, feed, bio-based products, energy, and biofuels outside the EU. With our close relationships with end users across the value chain, CBH is always seeking to develop new markets for sustainably produced grain though ISCC PLUS.
ISCC audit requirements for the ISCC EU and ISCC PLUS schemes are harmonised, meaning that there is no additional action required by growers. Growers participating in ISCC EU will also be deemed as ISCC PLUS compliant.
