Workshop Series – Beyond REDII Biomass

Nov 2020

This workshop series is organised by the Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP –, the European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy (ETIP Bioenergy – and IEA Bioenergy.

The impending implementation of REDII by Member States and the recently launched review of REDII raises the profile of woody biomass in achieving climate goals as well as how sustainability of biomass should be defined and applied in practice. In parallel with the policy discussion and its evolution, biomass producers and forest owners strive to deliver legal and sustainable biomass (‘good biomass’) to EU Member States.

This series of online workshops is aimed at key stakeholders and contributes to the dialogue on how sustainable biomass is defined, what REDII implementation looks like in practice and how to ensure good biomass is supplied and used in a way that contributes to climate goals.
