The paper focuses on concerns related to the EU’s growing bioenergy use, which is being driven by EU climate and energy policies. The main asks in the paper are:
- A limit to the use of biomass for energy production to levels that can be sustainably supplied;
- An efficient and optimal use of biomass resources, in line with the principle of cascading use;
- Robust and verifiable emission savings on the basis of correct carbon accounting for bioenergy emissions;
- A comprehensive, binding set of environmental and social sustainability criteria.
The proposal is expected to be released before the end of 2016.
