How can agriculture contribute to achieving the EU’s emissions reductions targets?

We are pleased to invite you to a lunchtime event, kindly hosted by MEP Nicola Caputo (S&D – IT) and co-hosted by MEP Jo Leinen (S&D – DE).

13:30 – 15:30, Thursday 27 April, European Parliament, Brussels, Room ASP 8 F 388


What should agriculture’s contribution be towards achieving EU emissions reductions targets? In ongoing discussions about the Effort Sharing Regulation, this topic is one the most important areas of both disagreement and confusion.

Arguably, there are important differences when it comes to achieving mitigation in agriculture compared to other sectors. Nevertheless, the sector can and must make a contribution, if the EU is to meet its international climate commitments.

This event will provide an evidence-based discussion on the EU agriculture sector’s potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will detail ways in which these emissions reductions can be achieved and supported.

Why should you attend?

Come to join the discussion and hear presentations by experts working on agricultural mitigation, as well as the results of a new report by the Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP), reviewing the evidence on the EU’s agricultural mitigation potential. This event represents a timely opportunity to discuss this important issue.
