Bunker One Brazil ISCC Certification

In a groundbreaking development for Brazil’s bunker market, Bunker One, a leading global supplier of marine fuels, has achieved a significant milestone with its Brazil branch attaining ISCC Certification for Biofuels. This certification underscores the company’s commitment to sustainable solutions in marine fuel provision.

The International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a globally recognized standard that validates an organization’s adherence to stringent sustainability and traceability requirements for biofuels. By securing this certification, Bunker One ensures that the biofuels it trades are sourced from verified, responsible origins, reflecting its dedication to environmental preservation.

The maritime sector, which is responsible for 90% of global trade, ranks as the third-largest emitter in transportation. This sector faces increasing pressure to enhance environmental stewardship, driven by urgent calls from environmental advocates and stringent regulations from the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The IMO has set ambitious decarbonization targets to mitigate the environmental impact of shipping, prompting shipping companies to adopt more sustainable practices while maintaining safe and economical operations.

Aligned with the IMO’s decarbonization goals, Bunker One Brazil branch ISCC certification positions the company as a trusted provider of sustainable marine biofuels on a global scale. With its expertise as an independent global trader of marine fuels and bulk commodities, Bunker One is well-prepared to meet the evolving demands of the shipping industry.

Filippe Fernandez, Commercial Director at Bunker One, expressed his pride in the achievement, stating, “Bunker One is leading the way in the bunker industry’s journey towards decarbonization. The energy transition is essential, and we are proud to contribute to it. The ISCC Certification for 2nd Gen Biofuels at our Brazilian branch is a significant milestone, but it is just the beginning. There is still much work ahead. This accomplishment is a testament to our team’s dedication, and I want to extend a special thank you to André Reis and Glória Sousa for their hard work on this project.”
