Six pathways to smart certification of bio-based systems

June 7 @ 11:00 - 12:30

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Are you a policy maker, a member of the bio-based industry or a concerned consumer? Participate in the first webinar by the Horizon Europe project 3-CO on June 7th, 2024, 11 am to 12:30 pm (CET)! The webinar will address the vital topic of certification and labelling of biological feedstock, bio-based value chains and products.

Certification and labelling play a crucial role in empowering consumers to make informed and sustainable purchasing decisions by impeding greenwashing and instead providing credible and reliable sustainability information. Furthermore, they facilitate the tracking and traceability of biological feedstock throughout value chains, fostering transparency and accountability among stakeholders of the bio-based industry. However, there are a lot of challenges for current certification and labelling schemes, since they are often not sufficiently laid-out for bio-based products and their value-chains, and that they do not reflect the environmental and sustainability benefits.

Following different calls of the European Commission several Horizon Europe projects are currently tackling the issue of certification and labelling by taking into account current political and societal developments. The projects’ diverse approaches encompass assessment, monitoring, and validation of bio-based case studies, defining sustainability indicators, formulating guidelines for certification and labelling schemes, offering policy recommendations, and developing innovative digital tools to provide information on bio-based value chains to consumers or industry stakeholders.

Join us on June 7th and listen to pitches from six HORIZON Europe projects: 3-CO, BioReCer, HARMONITOR, Star4bbs, SUSTRACK, and Sustcert4Biobased. Together, we’ll explore their innovative approaches, recent advancements and latest results that pave the way for shaping a strong circular EU bioeconomy.

The organiser of the free webinar is 3-CO, which will support consumers’ purchasing decisions towards more sustainable solutions by improving the communication of label and certification schemes (LCS) on a Business-to-Consumers (B2C) level. To unlock the full potential of the bioeconomy and industrial bio-based products, 3-CO will establish a supportive framework and develop actionable guidelines for LCS owners that reflect consumers’ and other stakeholders’ needs. Meanwhile intense consumer involvement and digital tools will demonstrate their viability.
