DAFC: ENVI committee improves "very positive" EU Climate Law proposal

The European Parliament Envirronment Committee (ENVI) has voted to improve the Commission’s EU Climate Law proposal. New references to ‘food security’ and ‘certification of carbon removals’ add valuable elements to the Climate Law, which the Danish Agriculture and Food Council (DAFC) is very supportive of. Higher common EU ambitions further a more level playing field for Danish farmers and cooperatives on the EU internal market.
