Responding to the EU Commission’s proposals today to limit the use of biofuels in transport, John Sauven, Executive Director of Greenpeace said: 

“The EU Commission’s decision to put a limit on the use of crop-based biofuels is a step in the right direction. 

“The growing use of transport fuels from crops has driven up food prices, led to more deforestation in places like Indonesia to grow palm oil for fuel, and made climate change worse as a result.
