Testfakta Bio-based is a voluntary environmental certification system for bio-based products. The purpose of certification and labelling is to make it easier for consumers to choose goods made with a high proportion of renewable raw materials. Testfakta Bio-based can thus help to raise both demand for bio-based products and the shares of renewable raw materials in existing goods. The labelling can also promote development of more bio-based alternatives.

The Testfakta Bio-based certification programme is a collaboration between Testfakta and the state laboratory group RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. Testfakta Bio-based Europe AB is a wholly owned company in the Testfakta group.
