Joint Informal EU Energy and Environment Ministers’ Meeting

Ministers are expected to discuss the report on the impact on food prices and land rights of the EU biofuels policy and a proposal put forward by the European Commission in October to limit the contribution of biofuels made from food crops towards the 2020 renewable energy target at 5% of total energy in transport. They will also discuss whether to put in place a reporting mechanism on carbon emissions caused by expanding agriculture to accommodate new biofuels demand. Ministers will also discuss the climate and energy framework post-2030.
