Jean Lambert London's Green MEP

Biofuels

With the negative effects of biofuels becoming ever-more apparent, Greens in the European Parliament have influenced legislation to decrease the risks associated with burning crops as a fuel for vehicles.

 

Jean has received thousands of emails from constituents concerned about the devastating effects that biofuel production can have on food growing in the developing world.

 

Greens have called for a complete ban on food-based biofuels being used for fuel, and their contribution to EU targets on fossil fuel reduction. Greens voted to ensure that indirect land use change (ILUC) factors are accounted for when calculating the emissions associated with biofuels from 2020 onwards.
