The Covid-19 crisis has had a major impact on Europe’s labour market, adding another percentage point to pre-Covid unemployment levels and putting many more livelihoods at risk. Yet this crisis has also stimulated action, demonstrating our capacity to pivot at pace and move towards a new paradigm – low-carbon, efficient, local, and inclusive.

The bioeconomy, a sector defined by its relationship with the natural world, is a source of great innovation and green recovery for Europe. However, to realise its full potential and create new, green jobs and future-fit growth in Europe, it requires an integrated, coherent and clear policy framework.

In this policy paper, created in collaboration with Avril, Lantmännen, Neste, Novozymes, Scania, Shell and other leaders in the bioeconomy value chain through several working sessions, we’ve outlined several opportunities and policy proposals to enable the bioeconomy to fully play its part.
