Abstract

Die globale Nachfrage nach Bioenergie lässt einen boomenden Biomassehandel mit weit reichenden ökologischen und sozialen Auswirkungen entstehen. Standards und deren Zertifizierung werden als vielversprechender Ansatz zur Sicherung der Nachhaltigkeit in der Wertschöpfungskette gesehen. Inwieweit kann damit aber den unerwünschten Auswirkungen einer stark steigenden Nachfrage begegnet werden? Am Beispiel des Palmölhandels und der Standards des Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil wird diskutiert, unter welchen Voraussetzungen nichtstaatliche Standards zu einer öko-fairen Gestaltung der Wertschöpfungskette beitragen können und wie eine steigende Nachfrage die Wirksamkeit der Standards beeinflusst.
