We 💚 sustainability

SunPine’s tall diesel is an important contribution to meet the national target in Sweden of 70% less carbon dioxide emissions in the transport sector by 2030. Our other sustainable products – resin, turpentine, bio-oil and district heating – also contribute to reduced carbon dioxide emissions.

Sustainable biofuels based on residue from the paper and pulp industry

The transport sector is largely dependent on energy from fossil fuels. In order to increase the use of renewable energy alternatives and reduce the climate impact from the transport sector, the EU has put the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) in place. Sustainable production of biofuels is an important part of future energy supply. Therefore, it is important for SunPine to be able to prove the sustainability of biofuels throughout the whole supply chain – from the place where the residual product (our input material) is sourced and all the way to the products that we send to our customers. SunPine demonstrates compliance with the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) both by complying with the national implementation – Act (2010:598) sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids; but also by complying with the requirements of the globally recognized ISCC standard.

Sustainability decision
The Swedish implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) is Act (2010:598) sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids. The Swedish Energy Agency issues Sustainability decisions to companies that with their control program can show compliance with the Act (2010:598) sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids. SunPine holds a Sustainability decision.

ISCC EU Certificate (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification)
In addition to the Act (2010:598) sustainability criteria for biofuels and bioliquids, there are also a number of voluntary sustainability certifications available, of which the global ISCC certification is one. ISCC Certification is an effective internationally recognized way of demonstrating compliance with the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). SunPine’s ISCC EU certificate for our Raw Tall Diesel (fatty acids) was obtained in October 2021. The certification audit was performed by DNV GL. See also management commitment for ISCC.
