H.B. Fuller announced that its manufacturing sites in Lüneburg and Nienburg, Germany, have received the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS certification, underscoring the company’s commitment to a more sustainable future and its adherence to international standards across all stages of the supply chain.
The ISCC PLUS certification, one of the world’s largest, independent certification systems for sustainability, covers all sustainable feedstocks, including biomass, circular materials and renewables, and the mass balance approach, which is a calculation-based method used to track the inputs and outputs of mass within a system or a process. As defined by the ISCC PLUS, this method calculates the use of sustainable materials, meaning that every operational entity in the supply chain is ISCC certified to ensure traceability.
“By continuously exploring ways to reduce our carbon footprint and implementing new approaches, such as mass balance, we can now offer more solutions with verified, tracked, biobased and recycled raw materials throughout the entire supply chain,” said Nathalie Ruelle, H.B. Fuller’s global quality and sustainability director. “H.B. Fuller is on the right path to facilitate incremental transition to alternative materials and reduce emissions, while helping our customers achieve their own sustainability goals.”
