Südpack now has ISCC Plus certification

Ochsenhausen, Germany-based Südpack Verpackungen GmbH & Co. KG is one of the first film producers to have successfully completed the initial audit for ISCC PLUS certification (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification).  ll its German sites were certified in October and November 2021 and will gradually be followed by other locations.

Südpack has therefore established an important basis for the further devel-opment of its processes and products that will continue to drive the trans-formation from a linear to a circular economy. ISCC EU is one of the leading standards for sustainable biofuels. ISCC Plus has now expanded this globally recognized management system for mass balance certification to other key areas of the circular economy.

The aim is to ensure the traceability of raw materials along the entire value chain in the food, animal feed and chemical sectors. ISCC Plus is significantly more stringent than ISO certification, because every individual production site must be specifically certified.
