Working Paper 2: Operationalising Criteria to Protect Highly Biodiverse Grasslands under the Renewable Energy Directive (Directive 2009/28/EC)

AUTHORS: Catherine Bowyer – Graham Tucker – Håkon By – David Baldock

This document builds on the analysis conducted within WP1, and sets out an approach to the implementation of Article 17.3.c of European Community Directive 2009/28/EC aimed at fulfilling the requirements for the protection of highly biodiverse grassland from negative impacts of biofuels production. It was prepared by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP), in consultation with experts from across Europe, for WWF. The approach is intended to be both effective and practical, offering a legally sound and robust basis for decision making regarding the origins and grassland impacts of biofuel feedstocks used to meet the targets set in Directive 2009/28/EC.
