The future of Europe’s forests should not be decided by a Presidency that has been pushing for years to increase their exploitation – this is an explicit conflict of interest.
EU climate, nature and air quality goals are in jeopardy because of wood-burning for energy, new study shows
Climate-critical land carbon sink is rapidly declining, while harvesting and burning wood for biomass energy continues to grow
Environmental coalition sues the European Commission over inclusion of biomass and forestry activities in EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy
NGOs say finance rules will greenlight projects that increase climate warming and destroy forests
European Parliament vote signals the beginning of the end for forest biomass as renewable energy
NGOs Call on EU Leaders to Strengthen Provisions in Trilogue
It’s time to transfer billions in biomass subsidies to heat pumps and solar
A single 50 MW biomass electricity plant burns as much wood per year as 180,000 homes – while raking in millions in subsidies that could be supporting truly clean energy
Short webinar: Why policymakers must end incentives for forest biomass in the Renewable Energy Directive
Three talks, half an hour, including shocking news on how land sink in some member states is now a carbon source, due to overlogging.
Yes, Finland is devouring its forests for biomass fuel
The evidence that Finland is burning up its carbon sink – and its old-growth forests – couldn’t be clearer.
New Report Shows Biomass Industry Is Lighting Facts on Fire With Sustainability Claims
Many countries make misleading claims about wood use and so-called “climate benefits” of burning forest wood
The EU is inching closer to ending subsidies for polluting energy – but what about biomass?
In addition to ending subsidies for fossil fuels, EU citizens would probably love to stop paying out over €16 billion per year to bioenergy operators.
EU climate plan bets on non-existent technology to reduce emissions
Doubling down on burning biomass, and then counting on BECCS to hide the carbon later – what could possibly go wrong?
The EC offers business-as-usual in their proposal to reform biomass policies
If the EC were serious about stopping the catastrophic decline of forest ecosystems and the carbon sink, they’d take forest biomass out of the RED altogether.
Standing up for forests and against the Swedish forestry model: A letter to EC policymakers
It is time to stop false climate solutions like bioenergy that lull the public into inaction. You are literally cutting off the branch we all sit on.
