EUBA articulates enhanced cooperation between the Commission and EP towards a stronger bioeconomy agenda

April 2016 - The bioeconomy provides a turnover of 2 trillion Euros per year, accounts for 22 million jobs in Europe and its climate change mitigation potential ranges from between 1 and 2.5 billion tons of CO2 equivalent per year by 2030. These facts were presented by the European Bioeconomy Alliance (EUBA) to Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) and European Commission representatives gathered at a breakfast briefing session hosted by MEP Miapetra Kumpula-Natri in March.
