Policy

The bioeconomy can help Europe to deliver on its commitments for climate and biodiversity, while also creating jobs and accelerating innovation. The solutions are ready, but the bioeconomy needs a better policy framework to achieve its full potential. By optimising policies within Climate & Biodiversity and Jobs & Innovation, we can drive sustainable growth to support Europe's people and environment

Policy areas

Climate & Biodiversity

The bioeconomy is vital for ensuring Europe can reach its bold commitment to cut emissions by at least 50% by 2030 and delivering Member States’ national climate and energy plans, whilst also protecting our environment and biodiversity. To do this, we need supporting policies.

Jobs & Innovation

The bioeconomy can create 1 million new green jobs in rural and industrial Europe. This includes high-skilled high-value jobs that will accelerate Europe’s competitive advantage.
