REDcert – Your partner for sustainability certifications


REDcert offers certification schemes for sustainable biomass, biofuels and bioliquids (REDcert-DE and REDcert-EU) as well as sustainable agricultural raw materials for use in the food and feed industry and biomass for material purposes (REDcert²). REDcert's philosophy is to support the scheme participants in the implementation of sustainability certification and offer practically oriented schemes.

Do you have different raw materials but only want a single sustainability certification scheme? REDcert has various solutions requiring only one audit which allows you to supply your raw materials to all markets.

The REDcert schemes are applicable to all economic operators in the respective value chain. REDcert’s activities related to the implementation of sustainability requirements mainly focus on Germany and Europe.


You can find information about the tasks and goals of REDcert, the scheme requirements, inspection system, training dates and much more on our website.

    Secretary General of the German Farmers' Association (Deutscher Bauernverband e.V.)

    “The industry-driven REDcert scheme has succeeded in enabling farmers to provide the legally required proof of sustainability for their crops in the field of bioenergy in a practical way with little red tape. REDcert also offers solutions for the verification of sustainability requirements in the food chain, thus facilitating market access for our farmers.”

     

     

     

  • Horst Seide

    President of the German Biogas Association

    “REDcert is already a reliable partner for the certification of sustainable biomethane in the fuel sector. Starting in 2021, biogas facilities that generate electricity and heat must also be certified. The biogas industry is striving to meet this challenge by working with REDcert to develop a way to practically implement the EU requirements.”

  • Lieven Flamée

    QSE Director of Beaulieu International Group, BU Engineered Products

    “As leading manufacturer of yarns for contract, automotive and residential carpet applications, we really welcome the right and clear visibility the REDcert platform is offering on our biomass balanced yarns towards our industry partners. We are committed to grow in sustainability, and therefor value this certification as ground-breaking for any product derived from biomass. Beaulieu International Group was the first yarns producer getting a certificate for its EqoBalance, according to the new standard REDcert² for the chemical industry. The chemical industry is increasingly relying on the use of sustainably produced and certified biomass to replace fossil-based raw materials.”

Effective immediately, REDcert is offering a free database to permanently store land records for the proof of land status as of 1 January 2008.

With the development of the “REDcert land register”, REDcert offers all farmers the opportunity to keep their land registers secure on a permanent basis. After registration, users can enter the plot number, plot directory, plot name, main or partial areas, etc. and archive them.

The use of the land register is voluntary and free of charge.

The REDcert land register is now available (in German only) at https://www.flaechendaten.de or on the REDcert website (www.redcert.org).


You can also find a new information sheet on land status for agricultural producers of biomass to record cropland in a land register on our website at www.redcert.org/Information Biofuels sector.
