Preparation of a report on requirements for a sustainability scheme for energy uses of biomass

Consultation period: 16/07/2008 - 30/09/2008

The objective of the consultation is to seek views on key principles and criteria/indicators to be developed at EU level to ensure that the biomass for energy purposes comes from sustainable sources. The Commission has undertaken to report on such requirements by 2010 in its proposal for a Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources [COM(2008)19].
