The Benefits to the Healthcare sector of ISCC Plus Accreditation at Berry M&H
Earlier in the year we reported our ISCC+ Accreditation at our Berry Beccles, Corby, and Eaton Socon facilities who all hold this accreditation.
The Healthcare sector has a particular interest in this accreditation due to its need to follow stringent criteria for its products. The ISCC+ offers the possibility for many products which would otherwise struggle to be made from recycled content to use certified circular polymers*. This in turn allows us to certify that our products contribute to a circular economy approach, based on advanced recycling mass balance.
Gillian Smith healthcare sector lead for the Berry M&H said, “Being able to offer material that performs in the same manner as virgin content in the healthcare marketplace is great news, I have many customers that have already said they would like to be able to use more recycled content and I am now able to offer this for products where inclusion of post-consumer recycled (PCR) content has been previously been hard.”
As previously reported this accreditation allows us to offer our customers assurance that the certified circular polymer* used in the products supplied by Berry M&H are linked to recycled feedstock. That the products can be certified and supplied without any legislative or physical restrictions, and should they wish to customers can apply for the ISCC Plus themselves it will enable them to use the ISCC logo and make the same claims themselves directly on the finished products.
It is Berry M&H’s plan to certify additional sites to the ISCC Plus accreditation and look forward to announcing these achievements in the future.
