In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

SCS Global Services Issues First Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) Certification in Northern Hemisphere to Global Clean Energy Holdings

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SCS Global Services (SCS) announced that it has issued Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) certification to Global Clean Energy Holdings (GCEH), a California-based producer of non-food based biofuels, biomass and renewable chemical feedstocks. They are the first North American company to achieve RSB certification.

"We're happy to welcome GCEH under the RSB umbrella," said Dr. Michael Keyes, Senior Agriculture and Natural Resources Specialist for SCS, "GCEH is a model for how biofuels can be produced sustainably and contribute to reducing the carbon intensity of our fuels, while providing concrete contributions to communities and the environment."

RSB is the most stringent of all consensus standards for sustainable biofuel production, requiring high levels of compliance with environmental and social criteria. SCS evaluated GCEH against RSB's principles and criteria for agricultural sustainability, which include strict requirements to ensure social and environmental sustainability. 

Jatropha curcas is native to the Americas and can be grown on land unsuitable for food crops.  The plant produces an oil-rich seed best suited for use in high-quality biofuels and oleochemicals. Located in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, GCEH's Jatropha plantations are exclusively rain fed. All properties utilize fallow land unsuitable for subsistence or other commercial applications, such as former cattle ranches. In order to protect local plant species and wildlife, the company sets aside over 10% of its land to create conservation areas and buffer zones. GCEH also offers work and training initiatives, provides an infirmary for its employees, and sponsors a daily hot breakfast program for local school-children.

"The certification process included a very comprehensive review of all our operations," said Noah Verleun, Sustainability and Regulatory Affairs Manager at GCEH, "We're proud to report that we only had to institute minor operational adjustments to our already strong internal processes to qualify for the comprehensive RSB sustainability certification."
