The Arrow depots have been awarded the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) by the European Commission.
We now comply with the requirements of the RED (Renewable Energy Directive) from our input of feedstock, the retail of our cooking oils and products, and the processing and sales of our biodiesel.
We are also verified as reducing our Green House Gas Emissions which is something we have been working hard to achieve.
This award will help you our customers and suppliers in knowing that you are dealing with a partner who is sustainable and assisting our planet with less carbon emissions now and in generations to come.
According to European Renewable Energy Directive (RED) biomass for use as biofuel or bioenergy must be produced sustainably which results in an important contribution to climate protection and biodiversity. The directive sets relevant requirements to limit negative impacts on the environment.
ISCC is the first international certification system that can be used to prove sustainability and greenhouse gas savings for all kinds of biomass and bioenergy more than 250 stakeholders from Europe, the Americas and Southeast Asia contributed to its development.
The ISCC scheme documents the production of bioenergy with a mass balance system along the complete supply chain – starting at the farm or plantation, towards the mineral oil companies, power plant-operators or other users. The ISCC certificate is a reliable and persistent proof that biomass was produced according to European and German sustainability legislations.
As an international certification scheme ISCC implements the legal requirements for biofuels and liquid biomass for electricity production as well as for other applications e.g. the food and chemical markets.ISCC Website
