Revision of the regulation on land use, land-use change and forestry

At a Glance 01-06-2022

As part of the EU Climate Law agreement in 2021, the European Commission committed to revise the Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) Regulation to ensure an increase in carbon removals in the sector towards 2030. The proposal was included in the Commission's 'fit for 55' package. LULUCF carbon sink functions are an essential part of the EU's carbon neutrality pathway. The European Parliament will vote its position during the June I session, following adoption in the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.
