The International Sustainability and Carbon Certifcation (ISCC) Association was founded on January
26th 2010 and offcially registered on March 22nd 2010. ISCC is an international certifcation system
for Biomass and Biofuels (fuels and electricity) that describes the rules and procedures for certifca-
tion. This certifcation system is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agricultre
and Consumer Protection via the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR). ISCC does not issue
certifcates itself; this is done by the Certifying Bodies (currently fve). ISCC System is operative and
still under development. The objectives of ISCC are the establishment of an internationally oriented,
practical and transparent system for the certifcation of biomass and bioenergy. ISCC is oriented
towards i) reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions, ii) sustainable use of land, iii) protection of
natural biospheres, and iV) social sustainability

There has been rapid growth in the range of environmental and social (E&S) certifcation schemes
for agrifood chains in recent years. The Responsible Commodities Initiative of the Sustainable Food
Laboratory (www.glifood.com) is developing a tool that will provide guidance and support in the
development of new standards and clarify the offerings of existing schemes.
