How Europe’s bioeconomy contributes to the EU Green Deal

The European Commission has just published a new factsheet highlighting the importance of Europe's bioeonomy to achieving the EU Green Deal.

The bioeconomy, as a catalyst for systemic change, tackles the economic, social and environmental aspects of the Green Deal, seeking new ways of producing and consuming resources while respecting our planetary boundaries and moving away from a linear economy based on extensive use of fossil and mineral resources.

A circular and sustainable bioeconomy has the potential to contribute to all dimensions and objectives of the European Green Deal by:

  • Delivering on Europe’s economic prosperity and ensuring a fair and just transition.
  • Producing fossil-free materials for a climate-neutral future.
  • Enhancing the protection of the environment and ecosystems.
