The Role of Forests in Climate Change Mitigation: The EU Context

The European Union (EU) aims at reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. Within the land use, land-use change, and forestry (LULUCF) sector, forestry will contribute to this target with CO2 sink,

Significance of Agriculture for Bioeconomy in the Member States of the European Union

Bioeconomy is a response of the European Union and its member states to global challenges such as ensuring food security, mandatory sustainable management of natural resources, mitigating climate

From Paris to Switzerland: Four Pathways to a Forest Reference Level

Introduction: Among terrestrial ecosystems, forests represent large carbon stocks threatened by changing climatic conditions, deforestation, overexploitation, and forest degradation. Close to nature

Nordic forest management towards climate change mitigation: time dynamic temperature change impacts of wood product systems including substitution effects

Climate change mitigation trade-offs between increasing harvests to exploit substitution effects versus accumulating forest carbon sequestration complicate recommendations for climate beneficial

Supplementary material to "The European forest Carbon budget under future climate conditions and current management practices"

Abstract. To become carbon neutral by 2050, the European Union (EU27) net carbon sink from forests should increase from the current level of about −360 Mt CO2e yr−1 to −450 Mt CO2e yr−1 by 2050.

Improved modelling framework for assessing the interactions between the energy, agriculture, forestry and land use change sectors: Integrating the CAPRI, LUISA-BEES, CBM and POTEnCIA models

This report is an attempt to develop a modelling framework integrating different sectoral stand-alone models used at the JRC for policy impact assessment in the fields of agriculture, forestry, land

Substitution impacts of wood‐based textile fibers: Influence of market assumptions

Wood products may help to avoid fossil emissions when they substitute for more fossil‐intensive products. However, the estimates of avoided fossil emissions attributed to wood use tend to be based on

Trends in Synthetic Biology in the Bioeconomy of Non-food-Competing Biofuels

This work mapped the SB scientific knowledge related to biofuels using software that combines information visualization methods, bibliometrics, and data mining algorithms to identify the global evolution of investments, concepts, and techniques underlying the field in support of policy formulations for sustainable bioenergy production.



Assessing Impacts of Wood Utilisation Scenarios for a Lithuanian Bioeconomy: Impacts on Carbon in Forests and Harvested Wood Products and on the Socio-Economic Performance of the Forest-Based Sector

The results suggest that increased wood utilisation might support Lithuania’s bioeconomy through increased socio-economic benefits and national positive climate change mitigation effects could be gained only if additional actions to utilise more domestic wood for long-life HWP will be taken.

Contribution of forest wood products to negative emissions: historical comparative analysis from 1960 to 2015 in Norway, Sweden and Finland

It is argued for a more explicit accounting of the actual emission rates from HWPs in carbon balance studies and climate impact analysis of forestry systems and products, and a more transparent inclusion of the potential of HWP as negative emissions in perspective studies and scenarios.

Potential Roles of Swedish Forestry in the Context of Climate Change Mitigation

Swedish forestry’s contribution to climate change mitigation could be significantly increased if management of the boreal forest were oriented towards increased biomass production and if more wood were used to substitute fossil fuels and energy-intensive materials.

Modelling forest carbon stock changes as affected by harvest and natural disturbances. II. EU-level analysis

This study presents the application of a consistent methodological approach, based on an inventory-based model, adapted to the forest management conditions of EU countries, and captures, with satisfactory detail, the C sink reported in the EU GHGI and the country-specific variability due to harvest, natural disturbances and land-use changes.

Assessing the integrated climatic impacts of forestry and wood products.

Managed forests serve as a store of carbon (C) and a renewable source of energy and materials. By using forest products as substitutes for fossil fuels or non-renewable materials, emissions from

Price of CO2 emissions and use of wood in Europe

Climate change mitigation through increased wood use in the European construction sector—towards an integrated modelling framework

Using wood as a building material affects the carbon balance through several mechanisms. This paper describes a modelling approach that integrates a wood product substitution model, a global partial
