The European Commission recently renewed Bonsucro’s status as a recognised scheme compliant with the EU Renewable Energy Directive (EU RED).
The recognition is valid for five years. To fully comply with the EU RED amendments, a small number of changes have been made to the documents in the Bonsucro Certification System. These updated versions can be found in the Tools & Resources section of the Bonsucro website:
- Production Standard v4.2:
- Production Standard Guidance v.4.2
- Chain of Custody Standard v4.1
- Chain of Custody Standard Guidance v4.1
This recognition allows Bonsucro-certified ethanol made from sugarcane to be imported into the European market. More can be read about the recognition in the announcement here.
