Measuring, governing and gaining support for sustainable bioenergy supply chains

IEA Inter-Tasks Sustainability Project 2016 is synthesised works of a number of IEA Bioenergy Tasks including Task 37, 38, 39, 40, 42 and 43 with three main objectives:

  1. To provide an overview of calculation methods & tools to assess the sustainability of various
    biomass and bioenergy supply chains and discuss needs, possibilities and limitations of a
    global, uniform/harmonized framework.
  2. To compare and assess the legitimacy, including effectiveness and efficiency of a variety of
    approaches on how to govern and verify sustainability of biomass and bioenergy supply
    chains in different conditions.
  3. To understand the positions and underlying motivations of stakeholder groups relative to their
    perceptions of bioenergy and inform dialogues/discussions to avoid misconceptions and gain
    trust in bioenergy
