Tools and Methodologies

BEFS has compiled a set of thirty relevant tools and methodologies that can be used to inform the development of a sustainable bioenergy sector and of sustainable operations, and to assess, both ex-ante and ex-post, the main environmental and socio-economic impacts arising from individual operations or from the bioenergy sector as a whole.

The thirty tools and methodologies can be used to conduct impact assessments, as well as to inform the development of sustainable bioenergy policies, strategies and investments. These science-based tools and methodologies, which can be used by governments, operators and any other interested stakeholders, were selected based on their relevance (especially in terms of applicability to bioenergy), practicality and replicability.
