With our members, we anticipate and develop leading positions on issues of concern to the advancement and growth of bioenergy in Australia.

As the peak body representing Australia's bioenergy industry, we play a key role in advocating to government on issues affecting our members and industry. We do this through regular submissions, position statements and targeted industry groups. 

We work closely with industry bodies, federal agencies and government departments on legislative development, seeking to raise the profile of the industry, drive growth, and influence key decision makers.
