Supply is one thing, but what about demand? Will politics, consumer sentiment and campaigning hold back sustainable biofuels use by 2030?

Clock icon 11:15 - 11:45
According to data from Copenhagen Economics, half of the EU’s 6 billion euros worth of palm oil imports are used for biodiesel mostly from South East Asia. In this session, we will look at the implications of phasing out of high-ILUC risk palm oil by 2030 and what this means for business. 
·      Does the science matter? Will perceptions trump reality when it comes to brand purchasing decisions? 
·      The future of biodiesel: How will the politics of palm oil affect biodiesel in the EU?
·      Will the palm oil controversy spread to other crops/feedstocks? 
·      Response from certification schemes to this process
·      What are the likely indirect consequences of this?
