Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP)

In 2022, Skeena Bioenergy became certified through the Sustainable Biomass Certification Program (SBP). The SBP is a certification system designed to encourage sustainable uses for woody biomass — usually in the form of wood pellets and wood chips — like those used in industrial, large-scale energy production.
