Members of One Planet Business for Biodiversity (OP2B):

  • Acknowledge the rapid deterioration of soil health in Europe and support the Commission’s willingness to take measures to promote sustainable soil management practices.
  • Regret the proposal’s restricted scope in providing stronger guidance on sustainable soil management approaches and facilitating coordinated action at the European level.
  • Highlight regenerative agriculture’s value and request its inclusion in best practices.
  • Call for strengthening the financial component of the proposal to meet the challenges and necessary transition effectively.
