Money to Burn
Behind the Scenes
Behind the Scenes of 'Money to Burn': an investigation by a team of journalists and European newsrooms, led by Argos and funded by Investigative Journalism for Europe. For a period of three months, our cross-border team looked into everything related to the biomass trade, from subsidies, to certifications, to the European lobby, after learning from a colleague in Tallinn that Estonia was exporting almost all of its pellets overseas, with increasing impact on the country’s forests. The result is the cross-border story you see here, plus a series of radio, print and online publications in our partner media.
