Bonsucro, a global non-profit organization that promotes sustainable sugarcane production, processing and trade around the world, last week announced that SCS Global Services (SCS) has qualified as a Licensed Training Provider.
SCS will deliver training on Bonsucro’s Certification System, Production Standard, Chain of Custody Standard, and Calculators. The company plans to offer both remote and in-person training courses in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
“We have been conducting Bonsucro certification for biofuels in Central America since 2014 and have come a long way in developing expertise and a network of resources in Latin America, United States, Europe, Australia and South East Asia,” said Eddie Gomez, SCS’ Sales and Business Development Representative in Latin America.
“We are delighted with this opportunity to share our knowledge and training to help organizations communicate their sustainability success stories,” Gomez said.
SCS is a leading international third-party certifier and standards developer, and a pioneer in the environmental, sustainability, food safety and quality performance claims.
One of Bonsucro’s core priorities is to make learning about sugarcane sustainability easy and accessible. During trainings, participants will learn everything from the fundamentals of Bonsucro’s standards, to the details about Bonsucro certification and calculators.
Bonsucro is an international not-for-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 2008 to promote sustainable sugar cane.

It does this through setting sustainability standards and certifying sugar cane products including ethanol, sugar and molasses.
