IMCD Germany and Benelux are ISCC PLUS & REDcert² certified
IMCD Germany and IMCD Benelux are now certified according to ISCC PLUS and REDcert2. With this voluntary commitment, IMCD sets another important milestone for a sustainable future.
ISCC PLUS (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) and REDcert2 are the world's leading sustainability certification systems for sustainable raw materials and recycled materials in the chemical industry. These certificates ensure the traceability of sustainable products along the entire value chain, from production and distribution to the end consumer.
"I am pleased that we can offer our customers certified products made from renewable and environmentally friendly raw materials and that we can support them in achieving their sustainability goals at the same time," says Robert Abraham, Unit Manager HSEQ at IMCD Germany.
Mass balance approach
Supply chains and the associated raw materials and material flows are often very complex in the chemical industry. In order to make the use of sustainable substances in the entire process transparent and measurable, the mass balance approach is applied. Here, the total share of fossil resources in the production process is precisely determined in order to replace them with renewable raw materials. By saving fossil raw materials, CO2 emissions can be reduced. The certified products are qualitatively identical to the original conventional products and can generally continue to be used for proven formulations, existing production processes and plants. "With the certifications and an independent audit, we guarantee our customers that the products meet all sustainability requirements and can be marketed with the corresponding sustainable certification," explains Robert Abraham.
With the certifications, IMCD underpins its commitment to sustainability and thus follows the corporate strategy to further expand its comprehensive portfolio with sustainable products in the near future. "In addition to the platinum award from EcoVadis, we are aligning ourselves even further sustainably with the successful ISCC Plus and REDcert2 certifications, thus making an important contribution to promoting the circular economy together with our partners."
