Joint statement - A strong EU Nature Package to tackle the climate, health and biodiversity crises
On June 22, the European Commission is expected to publish two crucial legislative proposals to implement the EU Green Deal. The “Nature Protection Package” includes the EU Nature Restoration Law and the revision of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Directive (the Pesticides Reduction Regulation). We call on the Commission to publish the two Regulations on the planned date and introduce ambitious and binding targets to stop irreversible biodiversity breakdown.

Priorities for the upcoming French Presidency of the Council in the Pesticide area
« Nous devons construire un chemin tous ensemble pour protéger nos sols, mais aussi nos activités agricoles (…) quand on trouve des substituts non-chimiques, quand on crée des cépages résistants, quand on modifie utilement le vivant, on peut se passer de pesticides tout en restant compétitif (…). Ce n’est qu’au niveau européen que nous y arriverons, [la France portera] une initiative forte de sortie accélérée des pesticides »
