- 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.
- 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.
- 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
