SBP certification

SBP certification

Sveaskog Baltfor is certified according to the Sustainable Biomass Partnership (SBP) standard since 31 August, 2017 (certificate registration code SBP-01-84).

The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) is a certification system designed for woody biomass, mostly in the form of wood pellets and woodchips, used in industrial, large-scale energy production.

SBP has developed a certification system to provide assurance that woody biomass is sourced from legal and sustainable sources allowing companies in the biomass sector to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements.

SBP-endorsed Regional Risk Assessment for Latvia has been published on September 28, 2017. The purpose of an RRA is to evaluate an entire geographic region and determine the risks associated with sourcing feedstock for biomass pellet or woodchip production from that region. Thus, the need for individual Biomass Producers to conduct risk assessments is avoided and, therefore, consistency between Biomass Producers’ risk assessments guaranteed. The SBP RRA procedure also ensures active engagement with a diverse range of stakeholders in the region.. 

Standards can be found at the Sustainable Biomass Partnership website.
