To reduce their carbon footprint and limit environmental impact, companies are turning towards sustainable energy sources, such as biofuels. As alternative fuels become increasingly available, organisations must carefully monitor their biofuel and biomass supply chains for quality, reliability and sustainability.
A global move towards renewable, low-carbon sources of energy, such as biofuels and biomass, is key to slowing climate change. Governments worldwide are setting ambitious targets for renewable energy use, and offering tax incentives to companies that meet or exceed sustainability goals.
Voluntary schemes for biofuels management help companies prove compliance with EU directives (e.g., the Renewable Energy Directive [RED]) and local legislation, and become eligible for fiscal incentives. By certifying renewable biofuels, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to sustainable biofuels production and biomass processing and purchasing.

2BSVS: Access financial incentives
Voluntary Scheme 2BSvs allows farmers, biomass collection agencies, processors and traders to demonstrate compliance with EU directive 2009/28 (RED). The scheme ensures that biomass is used as raw material to produce biofuels, and requires auditing and verification along the supply chain. With certification to 2BSvs, companies can become eligible for financial incentives in EU member states and access European biofuels markets.
