This is how Europe’s agriculture should become greener

Almost 400 billion euros are earmarked for Europe’s farmers over the next few years. EU states and parliament have agreed on how the money should be allocated. There is more money for ecology – at least a little. NAfter months of struggle, negotiators from member states and the European Parliament have agreed on a reform of the EU’s agricultural policy. In future, European farmers will have to participate in so-called Eco-Schemes – ecological programs – in order to be entitled to the full direct payments from Brussels. The promotion is intended to become “greener”.From 2025, 25 percent of the aid is reserved for the programs. In the two years before that, the states should initially only test the new approach. In these years, the share of eco programs should only be 20 percent. ...

The false hope from the climate club

The planned CO2 border levy will generate little income, but could trigger new trade conflicts. A new study warns of this. AFederal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU) was in Brussels on Friday. Together with representatives from the steel industry, he met the two Commission Vice-Presidents Valdis Dombrovskis and Margrethe Vestager. It was a last-minute attempt to prevent the worst from happening. In the middle of next week, the commission will present its “Fit for 55” climate package. This consists of a total of twelve proposals on how the EU should reduce CO2 emissions by 55 percent by 2030, as promised. It is also about the question of how energy-intensive industries can be converted and how the steel industry, for example, can remain internationally competitive. “Cli...
