CEPF, COPA and COGECA, ELO joint letter to European Commission on cascading principle in ILUC following EP COM ENVI vote
According to the cascade principle, wood should be used in the following order of priority: woodbased products, re-use, recycling, bioenergy and disposal.
CEPF, Copa-Cogeca, ELO, EUSTAFOR and USSE strongly oppose the draft text on sustainability criteria for solid and gaseous biomass currently in inter-service consultation in the Commission.
The role of wood must be secured in tomorrow’s energy mix.
Woody biomass from sustainably managed European forests plays a crucial role in reaching the EU policy target of 20% renewable energy in 2020 and is fundamental to European green growth.
