Submitting a sustainability criteria report

  • Permit or other obligation
  • Nationwide
  • Public service

The sustainability criteria report is used to monitor the sustainability of raw materials used by operators supplying or producing biofuels and bioliquids. An operator with a sustainability criteria scheme submits an annual sustainability criteria report.

The sustainability criteria report must include information on raw materials for biofuel and bioliquids batches released for consumption, quantities of biofuel and bioliquids contained in the batches released for consumption and information that demonstrates compliance with the sustainability criteria. The sustainability criteria report must be accompanied by a copy of the verifier’s inspection report or equivalent information regarding the inspection.

Do the following

1 Fill in the required information in the Excel template for the sustainability criteria report. If you are using your own Excel table, make sure that the data in the table is in accordance with the guidelines and template provided by the Energy Authority. Do not lock the table or protect it by a password; the requested data might be copied from the table.

2 Obtain the verifier’s statement on the verification of compliance with the sustainability scheme.

3 Submit the sustainability criteria report by email to the registry of the Energy Authority.
