Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council – Sustainable Carbon Cycles

This communication focuses on the short-term actions to upscale carbon farming as a business model incentivising practices on natural ecosystems that increase carbon sequestration (section 2) and to foster a new industrial value chain for the sustainable capture, recycling, transport, and storage of carbon (section 3). These actions will all contribute to the mitigation effort of the Union either by reducing GHG emissions or by removing carbon from the atmosphere and pave the way for a policy of negative emissions in the future, with strong co-benefits for the Union’s ambition to reverse biodiversity loss and pollution.
