Press conference by Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC, on the first EU sustainability schemes for biofuels

Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, gave a press conference on the first EU sustainability schemes for biofuels. Biofuels could represent an environmentally-friendly replacement of fossil fuels. However, it was necessary to make sure that tropical forests and carbon rich peatlands were not turned into oil palm or sugarcane plantations. It also required to guarantee that compared to fossil fuels biofuels used in the EU deliver tangible greenhouse gas savings.
To this end, the sustainability of biofuels needed to be checked by Member States or through voluntary schemes which have been approved by the EC. This one recognised seven such voluntary schemes: ISCC, Bonsucro EU, RTRS EU RED, RSB EU RED, 2BSvs, RSBA, and Greenergy. This recognition applied directly in 27 EU Member States.
