In May 2020, the Commission published its Farm to Fork (F2F) and Biodiversity strategies, which include ambitious targets to be reached by 2030 (the setting aside of 10 % of agricultural land; a 20 % reduction in chemical fertilisers; a 50 % reduction in chemical pesticides; a 25 % share of organic production; the planting of 3 billion trees; a 50 % reduction in antimicrobials for livestock). The Commission has yet to publish an impact assessment.

In its impact assessment of the 2030 Climate Target Plan, the Commission refers to a modelling exercise providing ‘a quantitative assessment of the effects’, but gives no further details on the results. Furthermore, the study is not available to the public.
