The current focus on woody biomass in the European energy sector demands an urgent review of the present standards and procedures regarding the production of woody biomass. The key concepts driving woody biomass forward, as a promi-nent green energy source, are carbon neutrality and renewable energy. This pro-ject investigates the claimed upsides of woody biomass and determines whether this can be labeled sustainable. In order to assess the sustainability of woody bi-omass we develop a series of principles that aims to ensure a sustainable devel-opment within the field. Said principles are formulated through the Precaution-ary Principle as presented in the report Late lessons from early warnings pub-lished by the European Environmental Agency in 2001 and revised in 2013. This report concludes that woody biomass can be labeled as a sustainable energy source as long as the principles and criteria presented in this report are met.
