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. Objective 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. Objective 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. Objective 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
