2. Biodiversity

2.1. -increasing organic farming and biodiversity-rich landscape features on agricultural land; -halting and reversing the decline of pollinators -reducing the use and harmfulness of pesticides by 50% by 2030

Clean Air: -review air quality standards in line with the World Health Organization guidelines; -provide support to local authorities to achieve cleaner air for our citizens.

8. Climate action

8.1. -EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector, industry and flights within the EU; -national targets for sectors outside emissions trading, such as transport, buildings and agriculture; -ensuring our forests and land contribute to the fight against climate change.
