The next instalment of Bonsucro Technical Week is fast approaching. Are you or your suppliers interested in learning more about the Bonsucro platform and its certification system? Would you like to understand Bonsucro’s new IT tools for demonstrating and monitoring sustainability in supply chains? Want to see a sugarcane mill in action?

If so, join us in Thailand in May for a weeklong series of events aimed at learning, connecting, and sharing, including auditor/expert qualification training and introduction training, an introduction to Bonsucro Connect, a Local Guidance Workshop, and a field trip. The sessions will be held in English with simultaneous translation to Thai, and presentation material will be available in English and Thai.

When and Where?

Bonsucro Technical Week in Thailand runs from Monday 22 May until Friday 26 May. The main part of Technical Week in Thailand is set to take place in Bangkok at the LiT BANGKOK Hotel & Residence.

For the Field Visit, Thai Roong Ruang (TRR) Sugar Group will kindly welcome Technical Week participants to its Chonburi Sugar & Trading Corp., Ltd mill, which has been working towards achieving Bonsucro certification.

Bonsucro & Renovabio: Exploring synergies and advancing GHG reduction in Brazil

Project partners: Earth innovation Institute and Agroicone
Project length: 12 months Budget: $22,347,79
Supporting the Sustainable Development Goals:

RenovaBio is a Brazilian biofuel policy designed to decrease Brazil’s greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2029 [compared to 2018], in line with the Paris Agreement on climate change. It aims to do this by incentivising fuel distributors to blend more biofuels into their products. RenovaBio has established a certification scheme for biofuel, towards which Brazilian sugarcane mills are working, that will enable them to trade decarbonisation credits on the Brazilian stock exchange.

Bonsucro continuously seeks to grow awareness and adoption of its standard. In Brazil, this can be achieved by aligning its framework with RenovaBio to optimise costs and time for mills. In 2019, Bonsucro received a grant of US $22,000 from the Earth Innovation Institute to provide a common understanding of how RenovaBio works and how other regions might benefit from this approach.

Bonsucro addressed the topic at Bonsucro Global Week in Bangkok in March 2019, and through three stakeholder forums in Brazil. The Bonsucro team also commissioned a technical comparison study, which enabled the organisation to understand how best to align with RenovaBio’s requirements.

The study has been shared with key stakeholders in Brazil and the project is now complete. Bonsucro is working to incorporate the study’s findings and recommendations through its ongoing Production Standard Revision process.

By aligning opportunities of optimisation, joint work and integration with the Brazilian Government and reflecting it in the Bonsucro Standard, Bonsucro can help to ensure that more producers adopt sustainability standards like Bonsucro.
