Carbon Saving Statements (CSS) verify that carbon has been saved from an SCG certified process, and can be used as evidence of carbon saving for GHG SCOPE-3 accounting.
It covers sustainably sourced materials and captures the carbon saved from avoidance of virgin materials.
Supply chain and procurement checks are made to certify recycled material feedstocks and in-process quality controls, to ensure the carbon savings are validated and captured for use withing the value chain.
These carbon savings are recorded in SCG's Carbon Accounting system. CSS's are then generated to record and manage these savings, and can be used internally for your own Net Zero plans, or passed along the value chain for SCOPE-3 accounting.
The certification can be used to demonstrate compliance with ESG policies or Net Zero targets.
SCG's certification schemes effectively validate carbon savings for the value chain - where possible we link recyclers and customers to develop closed loop systems. This makes the value chain even more robust, localising the savings and driving innovation in circular economy thinking and infrastructure.
It can independently assure the products are made 100% recycled content, demonstrating that the Recycling Process generates the Carbon Savings .
It can assure supply chain businesses (especially brand owners and retailers) that your carbon saving claims are externally and independently verified.
Our LCP ‘fingerprint logo can be used on your documentation, packaging and products to clearly identify that the materials have been sustainably sourced, to avoid ‘greenwash’ challenges by customers and possible prosecution by industry ‘watchdogs’ (i.e Competition and Marketing Authority, Advertising Standards Authority).
