  • Letter to Commissioner Cañete: EU LULUCF proposal has repercussions beyond the EU

    In this letter T&E and 28 other organisations call on the European Commission to make a LULUCF proposal that recognises the role that forests, land and wetlands play in mitigating climate change in a way that does not lower any ambition to reduce emissions and recognises the multiple benefits that these ecosystems provide in feeding people, purifying air and water and providing a home to biodiversity and indigenous peoples.

    To achieve this, the organisations urge the Commission to propose a separate long-term target for land and forests, as part of its own pillar in the EU’s Climate and Energy Framework, and therefore separate to the Effort Sharing Decision.
