WE USE THE FOLLOWING CERTIFICATION SYSTEMS AND MONITORING INSTRUMENTS:

1. Our starting point for CO2 handling is “The CO2 Performance Ladder”.
The CO2 performance ladder is the sustainability instrument of the Netherlands, with which organizations and governments can map out their CO2 footprint and gain insight into where the organization can achieve the most CO2 reduction. Used as a CO2 management system and procurement instrument.
2. CERUB
CERUB stands for Certified Recycled Rubber, an internationally certified management system, including product labeling for the origin and reprocessing of high-quality, recycled SBR rubber from car tires, tailored to industrial reprocessing companies specializing in the processing of used car tires. The CERUB system and labeling is based on the Dutch basic system of the End-of-Life-Tire management company RecyBEM / Tire en Milieu i.c.w. Scandinavian fellow organizations.

WE USE THE FOLLOWING CERTIFICATION SYSTEMS AND MONITORING INSTRUMENTS:

3. Reuse of plastics:
No specific certified (environmental) management system is yet available for the reprocessing and reuse of plastics. This is currently under development. As an alternative, other certified systems are available, such as the internationally renowned ECOVADIS-CSR performance rate standard (Corporate Social Responsibility, incl. Supplier Sustainability ratings; Based on an ESG assessment (Environmental, Social and Governance ratings) by MJ HUDSON Spring; Incl. Assessment of ISO 5001 Energy management and NEN ISO 26000 for CSR Self-development.

4.Built environment
The same applies to application and processing in projects of application, construction and construction, etc., depending on the different application and processing processes in infrastructure, water management, landscaping and greening, and other living, working and residential environments. Well certificate, Breeam, ‘Natuur inclusief bouwen’ etc.

5. ECOTEST, decision support tool:
To calculate the added environmental value, CO2 savings, plus savings of (fossil) raw materials, energy, and optional cost or ecological benefits (compared to alternatives based on new, "virgin" raw materials / materials, the ECOTEST method is used, also developed on the initiative of our RACE partner, RecyBEM/Tire en Milieu.
Together with the fellow product organizations ARN (end-of-life vehicles) and STIBAT (batteries and accumulators).  ECOTEST maps out the four above-mentioned savings as benchmarking with alternative use of raw materials/ materials based on available, validated LCA studies (according to ISO 14040 with SimaPro 9.0 software), supplemented where necessary with own observations / analyzes, in case not available.
