The SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES Verification Scheme (SURE) is a certification that offers bioenergy producers the ability to prove that the bioenergy they produce meets the sustainability requirements of the Biomass Sustainability Ordinance (BioSt-NachV). Mercer Timber Products has deliberately chosen SURE certification as it directly supports and underlines our Mercer value of Sustainability. SURE is a full-scope system, meaning SURE enables the certification of the entire supply chain, starting with biomass production, processing, and transportation, up to the use of biomass for power and heat generation in biomass and biogas plants. Mercer Timber Products has implemented a process that ensures compliance with SURE requirements. During a certification audit, this process and our documentation were successfully verified for the first time in 2021. Since 2021, we have been SURE-certified and can prove that our biomass fuel has its origin in sustainable forest management.
