Governing Sustainability in Biomass Supply Chains for the Bioeconomy
Securing a sustainable supply of biomass is one of the key issues for deploying biobased energy, but also other biobased products. Given the ample debate on the sustainability of bioenergy and biofuels, it can be expected that similar requirements and governance systems will be discussed for other emerging biobased products, and existing bioeconomy commodities such as food & feed, fibers, timber etc.
The IEA Technology Roadmap Delivering Sustainable Bioenergy of 2017 identified a key action to develop and implement internationally recognized sustainability governance systems that cover all bioproducts and which support sustainable best practices and stimulate innovation .
This invitation-only workshop kicks-off this work and presents an overview of what relevant sustainability governance already exists and what more may be needed, and how collaboration of policy and market actors across sectors as well as civil society could support a sustainable bioeconomy.
More specifically, the aim of the workshop will be to discuss:
– What can we learn from experiences with sustainability governance (in agriculture, bioenergy, forestry) for the broader bioeconomy?
– Pragmatic solutions to operationalize sustainability governance (public & private sector, financial institutions).
– What actions are needed to progress towards a sustainable, circular bioeconomy?
– How can we provide confidence and gain trust in a sustainable bioeconomy, including bioenergy?
– How can international collaboration provide a way forward?

About the Biofuture Platform
The Biofuture Platform (www.biofutureplatform.org) is a 20-nation country-led, multi-stakeholder coalition launched in COP22 whose mission is to promote international collaboration and policy dialogue development to accelerate development and scale up deployment of modern sustainable low carbon bioeconomy. It contributes to close a major gap in the global efforts against climate change, promoting solutions for the transport, chemicals, plastics, industry and other sectors.
Com o propósito de levar a polos produtores de biocombustíveis esclarecimentos sobre a operacionalização do RenovaBio, em especial da calculadora RenovaCalc, dirimir eventuais dúvidas e identificar a necessidade de aperfeiçoamentos, a ANP implantou o programa “RenovaBio Itinerante”. São encontros com agentes econômicos e associações onde são feitas apresentações e discutidos temas pertinentes ao programa.
Nos dias 13 e 14 de junho de 2019 em Lomé, o Governo togolês organizara o primeiro Fórum Econômico Togo-União Europeia e convida todos os empresarios e investidores de varias origens a participar.
