ECOS Programme Manager Mathilde Crêpy presented standardisation gaps and needs for bio-based products at the European Bioplastics conference, the leading business forum for the bioplastics industry, which was held in Berlin on 4-5 December. She provided an overview of the criteria would be needed for a comprehensive sustainability standard for bio-based products. In particular she presented the STAR-ProBio project, an EU-funded project aiming to develop a toolbox to assess the sustainability of bio-based products, which ECOS is involved in.

ECOS has long been involved in the standardisation developments on bio-based products. Our work aims to foster the development of a transparent and reliable market for sustainable bio-based products, notably by ensuring that bio-based products have a verifiable physical bio-based content, that the risk of greenwashing is minimised and that sustainability assessments take into account the nature’s regenerative capacity and planetary boundaries.
