CEPS Project

The role of forests in future EU climate policy

Setting the agenda in 2019


The objective of the project is to make an independent assessment of the role of forests, based on CEPS own research and discussions with relevant stakeholders.

The main output is a policy brief. Main themes are the trade-offs between forest- based products and sinks or biodiversity, issues of carbon accounting to calculate the environmental and carbon footprint and the contribution of the forest-based industry to GHG reductions, availability of clean energy sources including low-carbon electricity, sustainable supply chains or the availability of markets for low-carbon products.
