MCS has participated in the 4C online seminar series „Sustainable Coffee Thursday“.

The international coffee certification scheme 4C Services is holding a series of online seminars revolving around sustainability problematics in the coffee sector. Various topics such as deforestation, biodiversity, climate change and social challenges within the coffee industry will be touched upon in the multiple rounds of bi-weekly seminars.
Meo Carbon Solutions has held a presentation on “Greenhouse Gas Calculations in Coffee Supply Chains and Climate Friendly Coffee Certification with 4C” last Thursday 15 October 2020 with more than 100 participants.

MCS welcomes the BMZ’s implication in favour of a more sustainable palm oil sector

MCS welcomes the support of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in favour of a more sustainable palm oil sector, by joining the Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil (FONAP) in July 2020. Alongside other stakeholders, the BMZ therefore takes a proactive stance in supporting higher increased usage of sustainably certified palm oil in various sectors. Every two years, MCS conducts an independent scientific study on the use of palm oil in Germany on behalf of FONAP. The 4th version of the “Study for a comprehensive analysis of the palm oil sector in Germany” for 2019 is planned for later this year, so stay tuned for more information!

Our latest article on an Integrated Sustainability Risk Analysis for Certification is published

Under the title "Combining Environmental Footprint Models, Remote Sensing Data, and Certification Data towards an Integrated Sustainability Risk Analysis for Certification in the Case of Palm Oil" Meo Carbon Solutions has published a new article together with co-authors from the German Biomass Research Centre (DBFZ), Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) and Global Risk Assessment Services (GRAS).
The article is published in the journal "Sustainability" as part of the special issue "Sustainability and Standardization". The outlined conceptual approach is about an integrated sustainability risk analysis of processes and products used within the Bioeconomy by taking into account footprint modelling data, the use of sustainability certification systems, and data and results from remote sensing analyses. Monitoring the potential impacts of the growing Bioeconomy (BE) is a crucial precondition for the development of viable and sustainable strategies. The three mentioned concepts can complement each other to form an integrated sustainability risk analysis. This will enable low-risk producers of renewable resources, who are located in regions generally flagged as high-risk when using environmental footprint modelling, not to be excluded from market activities but to set best practice examples that can then be expanded into these regions. The conducted case study on palm oil shows intersections between indicators used in sustainability certification systems and in footprint modelling considering processes on plantation and mill levels. Local best practices for the sustainable production of biomass are identified through a literature review and are extended by a survey, which evaluates the feasibility and conditions of implementing the selected practices on plantations.
