nova Session on Sustainability Certification – a Solid Basis for Reliable Green Claims

May 16 @ 13:00 - 16:30

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Hosts: Nicolas Hark, Senior, Specialist Economy and Policy, Asta Partanen, Senior Expert (both nova-Institute)

(13:00-16:00, CET)

Certification and labelling are becoming more and more important parts of the sustainability story, since the multitude of claims is confusing to consumers and can also be considered greenwashing in many cases. Two EU surveys in 2014 and 2020 confirmed that around 53% of all environmental claims on products were based on vague or false information and even 40% of all environmental claims did not provide verifiable evidence. Independent, third-party verification is one important tool to achieve credibility.

Also, more and more producers of chemicals, plastics, textiles and other materials are thinking about switching to biomass as a renewable resource. However, there is a lot of doubt about the overall sustainability of biomass use – and there is a big demand for reliable partnerships that increase knowledge and availability of feedstocks that can be used with a good conscience.

The three-hour webinar will introduce different options for biomass and bio-based products’ sustainability certification and what needs to be considered. A special focus will also be on the new requirements that are expected to come into play when the Green Claims Directive comes into force. Join this event to learn how to make your sustainability story even more convincing with sustainability certification.


  • Overview of the biomass sustainability certification landscape
  • Certification process and traceability, chain of custody models
  • Requirements for verification and certification from the proposed Green Claims Directive
