Naked Fuel comply's with the highest social and environmental standards on the market. Public concern about the state of the world’s forests and timber resources is increasing and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) provides us with a credible solution to complex environmental and social issues.
FSC is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests.
PEFC (Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification) chain of custody certification provides independent verified assurance that the certified forest-based material contained in a product originates from sustainably managed forests. It complements PEFC sustainable forest management certification, which ensures that forests are managed in line with challenging environmental, social and economic requirements.
There is limited uptake of forest-level certification schemes, such as the FSC and national standards endorsed by the PEFC, in some key forest source areas (or wood baskets) for woody biomass. In addition, the schemes themselves do not yet cover all the regulatory requirements that users of biomass for energy production must meet, for example, complex issues such as cascading use of wood, indirect land use change and carbon accounting.
Therefore, SBP is working to develop solutions, short-term and long-term, to address both these issues and is in discussion with both schemes on how these challenges might be overcome.
Carbon Trust Assurance is the world’s leading independent certification body for carbon footprints. Our certification process follows the only internationally recognised carbon neutral standard, PAS 2060, a standard developed by BSI with input from the Carbon Trust.
We ensure the robustness of carbon accounting, the strength of carbon management plans and that credible offsets have been purchased.
The Carbon Trust only recognises Gold Standard, VCS and Woodland Code UK carbon credits for offsetting.
