One of the central objectives of the European Green Deal is to shift Europe towards climate neutrality by 2050, which requires an unprecedented level of climate action across all economic sectors – including agriculture. While agriculture is the leading cause of biodiversity loss in Europe and accounts for about 11% of EU-27 total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, little has been done to reduce the sectors’ impact and agricultural emissions have remained roughly stable since 2005.
