Fern’s work on bioenergy
What do Fern and our partners want?
To achieve socially and environmentally friendly EU climate and energy policies, the EU must stop subsidising the burning of forest biomass and exclude bioenergy from counting towards renewable energy targets.
What are we doing?
Fern is helping coordinate individuals and organisations from around the world that are campaigning to reduce reliance on forest biomass for energy. Our strategy is simple: support NGOs and experts to battle corporate lobbyists and remove the market and government incentives for burning biomass, so as to reduce the overall amount of wood burned for energy to pre-2009 levels.
