The new EU forest strategy in the European Parliament: we support!

Tuesday, September 29 , 2020 412

Next week, the European Parliament will vote on the report “The European Forest Strategy – The way forward".


17 EU forest and forest-based sector most representative organisations decided in a position paper to support this report and to share three reasons why the report voted in the AGRI committee must be adopted by the European Parliament.


UEF was involved in this position paper and our European Professional Foresters organisation supports the AGRI comitee report.

In our opinion, the report provides the upcoming EU Forest Strategy with all the essential ingredients to allow forests and the forest-based sector to play their central roles in achieving the objectives of the European Green Deal, including climate neutrality by 2050. 


Please have a look at this new position paper and fell free to spread it around you in your own country. You can download it below.
