The first Bonsucro Certified sugarcane product entered the port of Rotterdam last week. It is the first shipment of a certified sugarcane product in Europe that will end up with the consumer. The Dutch company Argos oil will use the ethanol for their bio fuel products.
Bonsucro’s Production Standard assesses the biodiversity, ecosystem and human rights impacts of sugarcane production and demands legal compliance and continuous improvement throughout the production process. This is assessed against key indicators, such as energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption. Sugarcane mills are required to be members of Bonsucro and certificates are valid for three years, with annual audits. Workers active in Bonsucro areas earn a decent living and can work their way out of poverty.

Oliemaatschappij Argos en ontwikkelingsorganisatie Solidaridad en hebben de eerste schiplading gecertificeerde Bonsucro ethanol verwelkomd in de Rotterdamse haven. De aankomst van de lading vormt de laatste schakel in een jarenlange nauwe samenwerking tussen Argos en Solidaridad. Bonsucro is de wereldwijde standaard voor duurzame suikerriet. Bonsucro is de certificering die garant staat voor behoud van biodiversiteit, het ecosysteem en voor naleving van mensenrechten. De aangekomen lading suikerriet ethanol is afkomstig uit Brazilië en is hiermee het eerste Bonsucro gecertificeerde product bestemd voor de Europese markt. Argos gebruikt de gecertificeerde ethanol als biobrandstof voor het mengen van haar brandstoffen.

Solidaridad
For change that matters

Solidaridad is an international organization dedicated to responsible food production to feed the growing world population and to providing the world with an alternative to fossil fuels like oil and gas.

Solidaridad is convinced that the agricultural sector can produce more efficiently so that it will be able to feed the world population in 2050, as well as supply energy and plastic to the industry. That is why Solidaridad is investing in enterprising farmers in developing countries and putting emphasis on the improvement of their land use, so that production can increase while at the same time harm to people and the environment is decreased.

Mining and industry need to switch to a responsible means of production. Worker rights are respected and the environment is preserved for future generations, keeping intact its potential.

Solidaridad focuses on the production chains that matter worldwide and where changes have great impact: coffee, tea, cacao, fruit, textiles, cotton, soy, palm oil, sugar cane, gold and cattle breeding. - See more at: solidaridadnetwork.org/aboutus#sthash.xuVh2XID.dpuf
