Legislative initiative tabled by the European Commission on 14 July 2021, introducing amendments to Regulation (EU) 2018/841 and Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 in the framework of the climate objectives as enshrined in the European Climate Law.
Regulation (EU) 2018/814 sets out the commitments of the Member States of the European Union (EU) for the land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) sector that contribute to achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and meeting the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction target for the EU for the period 2021-2030. It also lays down rules for the accounting of emissions and removals from LULUCF and for checking compliance of Member States. Regulation (EU) 2018/1999 ensures the implementation of the Energy Union strategy in a coordinated and coherent manner.
This draft law aims to strengthen the contribution of the LULUCF sector to the increased overall climate ambition for 2030. It was unveiled by the European Commission on 14 July 2021, as part of the so-called Fit for 55 legislative package.
