M. Holland Company, an international distributor of thermoplastic resins and ancillary materials, has been granted its first International Sustainability & Carbon Certification Plus (ISCC Plus) certification in the U.S.
The company certified its business operations at a warehouse in Coal City, Illinois, owned by G&D Trucking/Hoffman Transportation, enabling it to accelerate the sales of commodity and engineered polymers from ISCC certified partners through the company’s operations based in Coal City.
Internationally recognised, ISCC plus is the leading global certification system that provides supply chain transparency and traceability for sustainable feedstocks used to manufacture advanced or chemically recycled polymers. With ISCC PLUS, producing companies ensure that the sustainability of their raw materials can be fully and transparently traced, from the field to the store. The certification requires companies to follow the mass balance or material segregation chain of custody models. This helps to ensure that the amount of bio-based, circular or renewable content is tracked across the value chain. The system has been adopted by many of M. Holland’s strategic suppliers.
“M. Holland’s ISCC Plus certification is a major milestone in our commitment to promote the circular economy and provide our customers with a broad suite of sustainable polymer solutions,” said Todd Waddle, director, Sustainability. “ISCC Plus certified materials are designed to be drop-in polymer alternatives with properties equivalent to conventional thermoplastics and the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint.”
