EU reaches biofuels 'consensus' - but no decision
An extraordinary ‘orientation meeting’ between the European Union's 27 commissioners has instructed the EU executive's energy and climate departments to sit down and jointly draft a legal proposal addressing indirect land use changes (ILUC) caused by the biofuels industry.
But no decisions were taken at the high-level meeting convened yesterday (2 May) by Commission Secretary-General Catherine Day, who oversees all departments at the EU executive. “All the details need now to be worked out,” Isaac Valero, spokesman for Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, told EurActiv. “There was a strong consensus on the need to address ILUC."
