Report on assessment of existing/emerging corporate sustainability strategies in the field of bioenergy

Jan 23, 2014

The purpose of the report was to give an overview of the corporate sustainability strategies/schemes in the field of bioenergy implemented by selected transnational and regional/local energy utilities operating in the BSR countries. The report synthesizes the findings of ten comprehensive assessments undertaken by the partners of the BP2 consortium. The focus of the assessments is on solid and gaseous biomass used in electricity, heating and cooling installations where no binding sustainability criteria have been adopted by the European Union so far. The case studies concerning selected companies/utilities follow a common structure based on a template that includes a brief company profile, key features of the corporate sustainability strategy and a set of specific questions on sustainability principles and criteria that are applied by a company for solid biomass used for energy production.
