FSC and Carbon Footprints of bio-energy and other forest products

Download Documents:


Room: SPB 2

Promotion of energy production from forest biomass is disputed due to concerns about carbon debt and impacts on biodiversity. FSC finds itself in the middle of this controversy because certification is used to prevent the latter impact. A large scale increase for bio-energy can put more pressure on forests and have adverse effects for other uses. Should FSC have a clear position about bio-energy?
