BIC releases a guidance to help the bio-based sector measure its contribution to SDGs

30 September 2020

The Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC) has commissioned guidance produced by the Institute of European Environmental Policy (IEEP) enabling the bio-based industries to measure better how bio-based projects contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This guidance sets out specific indicators and the methodological steps for assessing the impact of bio-based projects on SDGs, whether they are financed through public or private sources or realised independently.

The guidance is a demonstration of BIC’s commitment to realising its Vision 2050 for a circular bio-society which is guided by the SDGs objectives. It is part of a broader process to upscale sustainability practices across the bio-based industry involving a holistic set of stakeholders, including policymakers and civil society.
