On the urgent need for an ambitious and progressive EU Soil Health Law
Joint open letter
With the health of European soils rapidly degrading, an ambitious Soil Health Law is urgently needed. A legislative framework for soil has the potential to deliver much-needed policy integration and coherence, catalyzing the positive socio-ecological and -economic impact of EU policy. Healthy soils are fundamental to achieving the climate, biodiversity, water and zero pollution targets of the European Green Deal, and to support the EU’s Farm to Fork objectives and transition to a sustainable food system.
