The European agenda for 2021 is marked by some points that affect our sector, among which it is worth mentioning the European Green Pact, the circular economy, the Climate Law, the CAP and the new strategy From Farm to Table. From Anafric we are going to divide them and comment on them.
The European recovery plan against Covid-19 will lay the foundations for a climate-neutral and sustainable Europe. This year, MEPs will work on different initiatives included in the European Green Deal and related to agriculture, circular economy, biodiversity, forests, energy, emissions and the emissions trading system.
Another of Parliament’s priorities will continue to be to establish as a legally binding target the so-called climate neutrality for the EU in 2050. The EU must conclude the negotiations on the Climate Law, where the Parliament advocates a 60% reduction in emissions by 2030.
The Parliament, the Commission and the Council must conclude the negotiations on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the period 2022-2027 and align it with the European Green Deal and environmental objectives. MEPs will also study the new ‘Farm to Table’ strategy, which seeks to further analyze the food system.
