Fibertex has announced that the company will now supply ISCC Plus (International Sustainability and Carbon Certification) certified nonwovens from both Malaysia and Denmark, an important contribution to a more sustainable and responsible supply chain. The certification also applies to supplies from their Malaysian-based print business unit, Innowo Print.

The Danish nonwovens production site obtained the ISCC Plus certification last year – as the world’s first producer of nonwovens for hygiene and medical applications. ISCC Plus is a supply chain certification for circular (recycled) and bio-based materials providing traceability along the supply chain. It also verifies that certified companies meet high environmental and social standards, Fibertex said in a press release.

The ISCC Plus certification works on what is known as a “mass balance system”. The system makes it possible to track the amount and sustainability characteristics of circular and/or bio-based content in the value chain and attribute it based on verifiable bookkeeping with predefined and transparent rules. ISCC initiated the mass balance system to support a quicker scale-up of a sustainable bio-economy and circular economy, to gradually replace fossil resources and thereby significantly reduce climate emissions.
