The recast of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) has been approved by the European Parliament. While it ensures that the production of biodiesel from palm oil will be phased out by 2021 and introduces a 35% target for renewable energy by 2030, it still incentivises a harmful fuel-for-land policy and allows for the use of other crops for the production of biofuels which have a high carbon footprint.
