How the bioeconomy can support a European recovery
The European Recovery Plan is a double opportunity: to restart and strengthen the economy after the impacts of COVID-19, and to put Europe on the path to net zero emissions by 2050. The bioeconomy can take us there.
By building on exiting EU schemes and national recovery plans, the bioeconomy can support a rapid recovery for Europe, boost innovation, and create inclusive economic growth while protecting our environment and biodiversity. With the right policies in place, we can rebuild a resilient and future-fit Europe.
Together with Avril, Lantmännen, Neste, Novozymes and Scania, we’ve identified key areas where the bioeconomy can contribute to the goals in the European Recovery plan: Investing in low carbon, high-productivity agriculture and sustainable forestry management; increasing the use of sustainable biofuels and making better use of bio-based waste and materials.
