SGS Webinar on the Renewable Energy Directive (RED)

The objective of this 45-minute webinar is to give an initial overview about the requirements of The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and the options to achieve compliance.

The agenda is the same as the webinar that was conducted by SGS last November 2011:


* Background
* Purpose of the EU RED
* Member State Obligations
* The EU Commission role
* Renewable Targets
* Independent Certification to achieve the RED – 2nd Party and Voluntary schemes
* Case Studies
* Q&A

Target audience

Quality, Environmental, purchasing, traders and managers of Biofuels supply chains who need to gain an understanding of the options, or would like to implement a management system to meet the RED requirements and or have an interest in the assessment/sustainability certification process.
Background

In its Strategy, the EU Commission defines the role that biofuels * produced from biomass, a renewable resource, may play in the future as a source of renewable energy serving as an alternative to the fossil fuel energy sources (chiefly oil) used in the transport sector. It also proposes measures to promote the production and use of biofuels.

The Community has long recognised the need to further promote renewable energy given that its exploitation contributes to climate change mitigation through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable development, security of supply and the development of acknowledge based industry creating jobs, economic growth, competitiveness and regional and rural development. This seminar outlines the background and requirements of the EU RED directive and options to achieve compliance.
