Indirect Land Use Change – Corinne Lepage MEP (ALDE)

In October 2012, the Commission published a proposal to limit global land conversion for biofuel production. The use of food-based biofuels to meet the 10% renewable energy target of the Renewable Energy Directive will be limited to 5%. There is also a requirement that biofuel factories reduce greenhouse gas emission from fossil fuels by at least 60%. But this will only apply to new plants built after 2014. Leading environment journalist, Sonja van Renssen, met Corinne Lepage MEP (ALDE), Rapporteur on the Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) proposal in the European Parliament’s Environment Committee, to discuss the proposal.

“Yes, I may proposed a certain number of innovations. If the Parliament was not innovative, it would, in fact, be useless.”
