24 04 17 3co banner webinar pathways to smart certification

Certification and labelling play a crucial role in empowering consumers to make informed and sustainable purchasing decisions by impeding greenwashing and instead providing credible and reliable sustainability information. Furthermore, they facilitate the tracking and traceability of biological feedstock throughout value chains, fostering transparency and accountability among stakeholders of the bio-based industry. However, there are a lot of challenges for current certification and labelling schemes, since they are often not sufficiently laid-out for bio-based products and their value-chains, and that they do not reflect the environmental and sustainability benefits.

Following different calls of the European Commission several Horizon Europe projects are currently tackling the issue of certification and labelling by taking into account current political and societal developments. The projects’ diverse approaches encompass assessment, monitoring, and validation of bio-based case studies, defining sustainability indicators, formulating guidelines for certification and labelling schemes, offering policy recommendations, and developing innovative digital tools to provide information on bio-based value chains to consumers or industry stakeholders.

Join us on June 7th and listen to pitches from six HORIZON Europe projects: 3-CO, BioReCer, HARMONITOR, Star4bbs, SUSTRACK, and Sustcert4Biobased. Together, we’ll explore their innovative approaches, recent advancements and latest results that pave the way for shaping a strong circular EU bioeconomy.

14th December – online, 15.00 to 17.00 (CET)– TRAINING ON STANDARDS AND R&I PROJECTS: HOW TO SUPPORT THE BIO-BASED INDUSTRIES

Don’t miss this free-of-charge online training by UNI Italian Standardisation Body in cooperation with BioReCer’s related project Star4bbs! The aim of this training is to shed light on the standardisation world: how it works, which are the main actors, and how it links with certification. The training will also highlight how organisations can transform R&I results into a fast-track standardisation document, the CEN Workshop Agreement – CWA. Finally, this training will explore standardisation outcomes from Star4bbs, BioReCer and Bioradar, and will disseminate objectives and intermediate results to companies, research institutions and standardisation experts.

13 November 2023 – 15:00-17:00 (CET) Annual Stakeholder Meeting (online)

The BioReCer (Biological Resources Certifications Schemes) project aims to assess and complement current certification schemes for biological resources according to the new EU sustainability goals to enhance bio-based circular systems.
This will be achieved by including new criteria that align with EU taxonomy and EU corporate due diligence regulations into guidelines for certifying biological resources’ sustainability, origin, tracking and traceability (T&T), and by ensuring applicability at EU and global scale.
The project includes the BioResources Stakeholders Platform (BRSP) where key players and interested parties can exchange informartion and develop suitable solutions. This annual meeting will inform stakeholders about the recent project achievements and future plans, and you are kindly invited to join the conversation.
