On November 13, the Commission launched public consultations on three of its climate-related pieces of legislation: the Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry Regulation, the Effort Sharing Regulation, and the EU Emission Trading System Directive. These legislative acts feed into binding greenhouse gas emission targets for all sectors of the EU economy including forestry, agriculture and transport. With the European Green Deal, the Commission wants to revise these policies and align them to the EU’s new objective of climate neutrality by 2050.
