Parliament adopts new carbon sinks goal that increases EU 2030 climate ambition


Parliament has adopted with 479 votes to 97 and 43 abstentions the revision of the regulation on the land use, land use change and forestry sector (LULUCF) which seeks to improve natural carbon sinks to make the EU the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 and improve biodiversity in line with the European Green Deal.

All EU member states will have nationally binding 2030 targets for removals and emissions from LULUCF based on recent levels of removals and potential for further removals. The current rules will apply until 2025, under which EU countries will have to ensure that emissions in the LULUCF sector do not exceed the amount that has been removed. From 2026, EU countries will have a four-year budget for 2026-2029 instead of binding annual target.
The revision of LULUCF rules is part of the 'Fit for 55 in 2030 package', which is the EU’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels in line with the European Climate Law.

          Forests should be protected during this course, industries must also take responsibility to reduce gas emissions

            This will ensure that the land sector will do its part in tackling the climate crisis.

                To achieve this, it will propose a cut in greenhouse gas emissions of at least 50% to 55% for 2030 from 1990 levels,which will be awesome.
