Abstract: The main drivers of shifting from fossil-based to a sustainable bio-based economy are global, European and national. Using content analysis of documents and research articles the main global drivers, such as depletion of natural resources, increasing population, increasing environmental pressures and climate change, were identified. The content and case study analysis revealed that there are five European drivers of bio-based economy. Thirst driver is common EU bio-economy policy, strategy and action plan. Policy and strategy is based on the global challenges and goals of EU development. Action Plan is based on three pillars: the development of new technologies and processes, the strengthening of markets and competitiveness of the bio-economy sectors and the promotion of closer inter-sectoral cooperation among all stakeholders. Sustainable development of bio-economy in the Baltic Sea region is also impossible without coordination of actions between the countries of this region. Second driver is assurance of biomass availability and sustainability and efficient biomass value chain. The basis for efficient biomass value chain is using cascading principle, minimizing waste, using waste as biomass, replacement of one type of biomass by another, and searching for alternative forms of biomass. Third driver is the need to strengthen markets and competitiveness of the bio-economy sectors. Using public and green procurements, motivating business to market new bio-products, development of short supply chains and promoting exports for higher value-added bio-products are the complex means which have to be strategically oriented. Fourth driver is the necessity of close cooperation among all stakeholders – politicians, business people, scientists and the public
