By obtaining the globally recognized ISCC PLUS certification, M. Holland has demonstrated it can reliably distribute advanced and chemically recycled materials to support customers in meeting sustainability goals.

Northbrook, Ill., April 20, 2023 — M. Holland Company, a leading international distributor of thermoplastic resins and ancillary materials, received its first International Sustainability & Carbon Certification PLUS (ISCC PLUS) certification in the U.S. The company certified its business operations at a warehouse in Coal City, Illinois, owned by G&D Trucking/Hoffman Transportation. By obtaining ISCC PLUS, M. Holland can accelerate the sales of commodity and engineered polymers from ISCC certified partners, through the company’s operations based in Coal City.

ISCC PLUS is the leading global certification system that provides supply chain transparency and traceability for sustainable feedstocks used to manufacture advanced or chemically recycled polymers. Many of M. Holland’s strategic suppliers have adopted the internationally recognized ISCC PLUS certification standards. The ISCC PLUS mass balance approach helps to ensure that the amount of bio-based, circular or renewable content is tracked across the value chain. This audited bookkeeping method gives M. Holland’s clients and suppliers confidence that the chain of custody has not been broken in the transfer of goods to meet their sustainability goals.

“M. Holland’s ISCC PLUS certification is a major milestone in our commitment to promote the circular economy and provide our customers with a broad suite of sustainable polymer solutions,” said Todd Waddle, director, Sustainability. “ISCC PLUS certified materials are designed to be drop-in polymer alternatives with properties equivalent to conventional thermoplastics and the added benefit of a reduced carbon footprint.”
