Factsheet: PAN Europe's contribution to the EU roadmap on Safeguarding nature – EU 2030 biodiversity strategy

PAN Europe welcomes that the new European Commission has started its five years in office with a consultation on biodiversity; we hope that this means putting biodiversity first on the EU agenda to underline the argument in the European Green Deal that ‘The EU has the collective ability to transform its economy and society to put it on a more sustainable path’. However, in order to make this happen the European Commission needs to seriously reconsider identified problems and actions proposed in the roadmap to also include the agricultural sector, and the need to gradually remove its dependency on chemicals.
