Hanwa achieves world first RSB Japan FIT Certification

February 21, 2021 |

In Switzerland, Hanwa, one of Japan’s biggest importers of Palm Kernel Shells (PKS) for the energy market in the country, achieved the world’s first certification to the new RSB Japan FIT Standard and Danish packaging company Hornbæk Plast Industri A/S achieved certification for the production of bio-attributed plastic bottles from forestry industry residues under the RSB Advanced Products Standard.

Hanwa and RSB are also further collaborating to develop and test a new approach to manage RSB compliance along the supply chain – including points of origin (mills), first collectors and traders. The aim is to simplify the process of demonstrating compliance for mills, while ensuring that RSB’s robust sustainability requirements are being met. By reducing the time involved in preparation and auditing, more mills will be encouraged to work with RSB and demonstrate the best-in-class sustainability required by the RSB Standard – contributing to better environmental and social practices in the industry.
