Fit for 55 and EU Taxonomy

On 11 December 2019, the Commission presented the European green deal, a growth strategy aiming to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Fit for 55 refers to the EU’s next big target – reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% compared to 1990.

The EU taxonomy provides companies, investors, and policymakers with appropriate definitions for which economic activities can be considered environmentally sustainable.

Agriculture is not yet part of the Taxonomy Regulation, but it was covered in March 2020 Taxonomy Report. This report describes farming practices that substantially contribute to climate change mitigation. A farmer who follows these practices is considered to be Sustainable Farmer by eAgronom.

Sustainable Farmer principles

Farmer should use an eAgronom GHG assessment tool for sources of emissions and carbon sinks on the farm. True data needs to be entered into eAgronom software, which calculates the relevant emissions and sequestrations in the farm.

  • Multi-year crop rotation and annual soil coverage
  • Careful soil management
  • Precise nutrient management and plant protection
  • Other climate-friendly practices
