Certification on carbon removals (2023)

February 2023. AREFLH reacted to the EU draft regulation on the certification of carbon removals

AREFLH follows the  developments related to the green transition and the agriculture sector’s role within it with great interest.


The issue of carbon sequestration has caught our attention, and while we welcome the idea of carbon sequestration certification as a means of securing sequestration as a form of income for farmers and land managers at a time when the sector faces structural and demographic challenges that generate long-term difficulties, we would like to provide a few observations on the issue that caught our attention.

Read AREFLH observations following the release of the draft act (FR, EN, ES, IT)
