Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP)

Warning! LobbyFacts is temporarily only showing data up to 19 September 2021. This is because from 20 September, the EU lobby register changed format and the register's secretariat is no longer providing complete and reliable daily data updates which LobbyFacts uses to keep up to date. This temporary problem has not affected LobbyFacts' archive facility, but for today's lobby data, please check the original EU lobby register. We hope the secretariat will remedy this soon, enabling us to launch a new improved and faster version of LobbyFacts.

Goals / Remit

The Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP) is a certification scheme designed for (solid) woody biomass used in industrial, large-scale energy production. SBP's purpose is to facilitate the economically, environmentally and socially responsible use of biomass enabling climate goals to be met.


The Sustainable Biomass Program aims to inform EU stakeholders about its activities, support the work of European policy makers and regulators in integrating (solid) woody biomass use for large-scale energy production into low carbon energy policy, and provide a tool for European utilities using biomass for energy production to demonstrate compliance with regulatory, including sustainability, requirements. The most relevant EU initiatives of interest to the SBP are - REDII review - Forest Strategy - LULUCF Regulation - Deforestation and Forest Degradation Regulation - JRC Biomass Study - Taxonomy Regulation - Biodiversity Strategy
