European Green Deal: Commission launches public consultation on Organic Farming
As organic farming will play a vital role in achieving the European Green Deal ambition, the European Commission has launched a public consultation on its future action plan in order to meet the objectives set out in the Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies.
“Organic farming will be a key ally in the transition that we are leading towards a more sustainable food system and a better protection of our biodiversity. The Commission will support the organic sector towards the achievement of the 25% target of agricultural land under organic farming by 2030 with the appropriate policy and legal framework,” Agriculture and rural development Commissioner Janusz Wojciechowski said.
It is to be noted that it is a priority for the European Commission to ensure that the organic farming sector has the right tools in place which is key to achieving the objective of 25% of agricultural land dedicated to organic farming.
In May 2020, the Commission adopted its Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies.
