More than 120 organizations from 40 countries protest bioeconomy in open letter

November 7, 2018 |

In California, an international coalition of more than 120 organizations from 40 countries warn that the rapid global growth of the so-called bioeconomy poses a grave risk to the climate, nature, and human rights.

In addition to publishing an Open Letter, a petition was launched to coincide with the International Day of Action on Bioenergy which calls on governments around the world to support proven low carbon technologies, reduce overconsumption, and protect forests and other ecosystems.

Major figures from the industry and policymakers will gather in San Francisco for an event organized by the Biofuture Platform, an initiative supported by 20 countries and backed by organizations including the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The Biofuture Platform promotes products made out of bio-materials as well as the wider bioeconomy.
