Sustainable Biomass Program

Sustainable Biomass Program

The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) is a certification system designed for woody biomass, mostly in the form of wood pellets and woodchips, used in industrial, large-scale energy production.

SBP has developed a certification system to provide assurance that woody biomass is sourced from legal and sustainable sources allowing companies in the biomass sector to demonstrate compliance with Standards that, as a minimum, align with regulatory requirements. Our certification system is designed as a clear statement of principles, standards and processes necessary to demonstrate such compliance.

We seek to avoid duplication and to be consistent with other standards that have overlapping scopes, while not limiting innovation and improvement.
