In this document, the EEB responds to a public consultation launched by the European Commission on the revision of the Effort Sharing Regulation, which aims at reducing emissions from specific sectors of the economy.

The agricultural sector will play a crucial role in efforts to achieve the 2030 reduction target. For the EEB, the most ambitious option is to maintain the Effort Sharing Regulation and integrate agriculture under the LULUCF regulation by creating a new Agricultural, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) regulation. This new potential regulation must integrate a specific target for agriculture – for both CO2 and non-CO2 emissions – and oblige EU member states to take all GHG emissions from the AFOLU sector into account, linking farm management systems and practices to land use.
