A new JRC report on the use of woody biomass for energy production in the EU shows the need to recognise that sustainability of bioenergy remains a complex issue with no one-size-fits-all answers, but that win-win and lose-lose forest management pathways for climate and biodiversity exist.

Bioenergy sits at the nexus of two of the main environmental crises of the 21st century: biodiversity and climate emergencies.
