Task Force on Sustainability

GBEP established the Task Force on Sustainability in 2008, under the leadership of the United Kingdom. Led by Sweden after 2010, the Task Force developed in 2011 a set of twenty-four voluntary sustainability indicators for bioenergy, published in the report The Global Bioenergy Partnership Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy.

The indicators intend to guide any analysis undertaken of bioenergy at the domestic level with a view to informing decision making and facilitating the sustainable development of bioenergy in a manner consistent with multilateral trade obligations. The indicators have been tested in a number of countries at both regional and national level, to evaluate their feasibility and enhance their practicality as a tool for policymaking.

The Task Force is now working to develop an Implementation Guide on the use of the GBEP Sustainability Indicators (GSI), to improve their practicality and related guidance for users.

Scope of work for the production of an implementation guide on the use of the GBEP Sustainability Indicators for Bioenergy
