“Testing” the sustainability principles and criteria developed during the Main stage project

Jan 22, 2014

In the absence of binding EU-wide sustainability criteria for solid and gaseous biomass, several energy utility companies and grid transmission operators started to set up and implement corporate sustainability schemes on a voluntary basis. Several utility companies concluded voluntary agreements with public authorities.
