Sustainability certification of
bio-based products

Free access with Visitor Pass







With the increasing shift from fossil to bio-based products; safeguarding the sustainability of biobased products and their compliance with a variety of European policy objectives is becoming an important topic.

The Horizon Europe projects HARMONITOR, STAR4BBS and SustCert4BioBased assess certification schemes and labels (CSLs) and their use to ascertain the sustainability of bio-based products in the European Union.

Presentations will feature preliminary results from all three projects, including amongst others the overview of major (un)certified trade flows of biobased materials, reviews of existing monitoring systems for CSL, and the first outcomes of an open stakeholder consultation on the effectiveness and robustness of CSL’s.

Last but not least, the event will feature a roundtable in which various stakeholders will be asked to present their views on the potential role(s) of CSLs in the future European Circular Bioeconomy and on the design of a monitoring tool for CSLs.
