Biofuels, Palm Oil and the REDII: What’s the way forward?

The debate is kindly hosted by Seán Kelly MEP and Jo Leinen MEP. The review of the EU Renewable Energy Directive is still ongoing and there are major differences between the the EU Parliament’s decision and the EU Council’s general approach on transport. One of the hotly disputed issues is the future of biofuels and especially crop biofuels with high emissions, such as palm oil.

This policy debate will be an opportunity to bring together the voices of different stakeholders on the issue.

Speakers include:

  • Seán Kelly MEP
  • Jo Leinen MEP
  • Chris Malins - Cerulogy
  • Lorelou Desjardins - Rainforest Foundation Norway
  • Representative from the European Biodiesel Board
