Inclusion of Aviation in EU Emissions Trading

October 2007 to December 2008

The project develops the technical guidelines for the inclusion of aviation in the European emissions trading scheme. It identifies the relevant data and methodologies and assesses how the existing guidelines of the European Commission for the monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions can be applied to aviation. Against this background, the project drafts amendments to the existing guidelines that include the monitoring and reporting of aviation’s baseline data and annual emissions data.

Monitoring, reporting and verification of emissions data are crucial to theRead more

Climate Policy Map

July 2007 to May 2008

The online Climate Policy Map offers interactive information on international climate policy that allows international cross-comparisons of key climate-related statistics and policies. Using the website’s Map Creator feature, visitors can create maps on climate policy by combining multifaceted information on climate policy with data on energy supplies and socio-economic factors for 14 countries and regions. In addition, the downloadable Country Fact Sheets and Issue Fact Sheets summarise information on climate policy for specific countries and issues. The Legal Basis portion of theRead more

Transport and the Environment: EU Transport Subsidies

4 June 2007
Macedonia, the former Yugoslav Republic of

At the EcoFest 2007, Aaron Best discussed the relationship between transportation and the environment, focusing in economic terms on the costs and benefits to the environment of various modes of transportation. He also discussed some of the ways governments offset some of those costs through taxes and charges.

Impact of Bioenergy Production on Water Quality and Water Resources

May 2007 to October 2007

The project compiles available scientific information on the likely impact of bioenergy production on water quality and water resources. The results of this project were presented in a background paper entiteled "WFD and Bioenergy production at the EU Level - A review of the possible impact of biomass production from agriculture on water" for the European conference "Water Framework Directive and Agriculture" in Paris, 21-22 September 2007.

The background paper gives a brief introduction to agricultural and bioenergy policy in the EU, followed by an introduction on EuropeanRead more

Sustainability Standards for Biofuels

May 2007 to June 2007

In April 2007 the European Commission (DG Transport and Energy) launched a public consultation on “Biofuel issues in the new legislation on the promotion of renewable energy”. Within this project, the European Environment Agency contracted Ecologic and Alterra to respond to the Commission’s public consultation with regard to how a biofuel sustainability system should be designed to avoid major biodiversity loss from land use change.

In particular, Ecologic responded to the Commission’s public consultation with regard to sustainability criterion 3. This criterion foresees thatRead more

Backgrounds and Effects of EU Bioenergy Policies (AGRINERGY)

May 2007 to October 2008

AGRINERGY (EU Bioenergy Policies and their effects on rural areas and agriculture policies) is a Specific Support Action (SSA) within the Sixth EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP6). The project aims to analyse and understand the socio-economic, environmental and societal issues of EU bioenergy policies and their effects on future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), and how they fit into the concept of sustainable rural development.

At the Spring meeting of the European Council in Brussels on 8-9 March 2007, the EU heads ofRead more

Environmental Technologies, Training and Awareness-Raising (ETTAR)

April 2007 to September 2009
Transportation, one of the backbones of today’s economy, is a service that significantly impacts the environment. The volume of transport, transport modes and technology used by transport vehicles determine the level of emissions into air (CO2, SO2, NOx, noise, etc.) and consumption of resources (energy, raw materials, land). At the same time, stakeholder consultations indicate that environmental technologies are not sufficiently used in this sector, partially due to a lack of knowledge and clear information.Read more

Size, Structure and Distribution of Transport Subsidies in Europe

The transport sector has significant environmental impacts and subsidies are a significant piece of the policy framework that influences public and private decisions about transport. This report, which was published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and co-authored by Ecologic, provides a comprehensive picture of transport subsidies, classifying them by subsidy type and transport mode.

Global Environmental Impacts of Large-Scale Bioenergy Production

February 2007 to May 2007

In this literature review Ecologic analyses more than 25 recent and relevant scientific studies with regard to the potential (positive as well as negative) environmental impacts of large-scale biomass production for bioenergy.

The study provides an overview of the most important and frequently named environmental pressures and impacts due to large-scale bioenergy production found in literature.  It relates environmental pressures along bioenergy processing chains (land use change, production/ cultivation of bioenergy crops, harvesting of bioenergy crops, building the necessaryRead more

Potential of the Ecological Footprint for Monitoring Environmental Impact from Natural Resource Use

December 2006 to May 2008

Ecologic led a comprehensive review of possible resource-specific indicators that might be used to monitor the decoupling of resource use from negative environmental impacts. The study focused particularly on the Ecological Footprint indicator and also developed a small set of indicators that together could assess progress toward decoupling. The study employed several evaluation methodologies, including RACER analysis, SWOT analysis and expert survey techniques.

The study found that the Ecological Footprint is a useful indicator for assessing progress on the EU’s ResourceRead more
