Stakeholder feedback on the 2018 Bioeconomy Strategy

In November 2019, the Council of the European Union adopted conclusions on the 2018 Bioeconomy Strategy “A sustainable Bioeconomy for Europe: strengthening the connection between economy, society and the environment”. While underlining the key importance of bioeconomy for the achievement of EU’s environmental and climate goals through sustainability and circularity, the Council stressed the necessity to assess the progress of the strategy and called for the delivery of a progress report by 2022.

As key parts of the policy-making process, stakeholders were invited to provide their feedback on the 2018 Strategy during an open consultation of the roadmap towards the progress report, between 12 July and 31 August 2021.

Summary of the analysis of the stakeholder feedback is available HERE.
