Organizations United Against the Burning of Biomass

The organisations below believe that we must move beyond burning forest biomass to effectively address climate change and call on governments, financiers, companies and civil society to avoid expansion of the forest biomass based energy industry and move away from its use. Subsidies for forest biomass energy must be eliminated. Protecting and restoring the world’s forests is a climate change solution, burning them is not.
