This Vision will establish a sustainable and competitive bio-based industry in the EU enabling a circular bio-society by 2050. In this circular bio-society, informed citizens choose a sustainable way of life, supporting an economy that couples economic growth with societal well-being and respect for the environment.

The Vision focuses on four key drivers:

  1. Foster food security for a growing world population and meet its demand for sustainable products
  2. Contribute to a sustainable planet
  3. Create jobs and growth in the circular bioeconomy
  4. Achieve a circular bioeconomic society
