    Goals / Remit

    European Carbon Farmers is on the mission of building a farmer-centric bridge between agriculture and climate policy.

    Strategically, we are using "carbon farming" as a language to build this bridge and operationally we believe the key change needed to happen in order to realise this mission is to see the CAP (the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU) structure change from action-based to result-based payments centred on climate measures. We see the key acceleration and synthesising role in this transition for the private agricultural carbon payment programs and connecting those with the CAP.

    At the international level, the European Carbon Farmers strongly supports the UNFCCC COP process and the UN Food Systems Summit.

    Main EU files targeted

    We have a singular goal: having each European farmer farming in harmony with nature.

    To realise this vision, we believe the CAP (the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU) structure needs to change from action-based to result-based payments centred on climate measures. Furthermore, we see the key acceleration and synthesising role in this transition for the private agricultural carbon payment programs and connecting those with the CAP.

    Communication activities

    The European Carbon Farmers participates in numerous activities - online and off-line - that promote carbon farming among farmers, agricultural extension agents and policymakers.

    Our flagship document in this regard is the proposal and an appeal for the creation of the Working Group on Climate Neutral and Nature Positive Agriculture presented to - among others - the Polish President and Prime Minister in December 2021. This document serves as a synthesis of our work up to December 2021, as well as a blueprint for what - we believe - needs to happen in order for our vision, which is identical to the ambitions of the Green Deal, to be realised.

    The Working Group proposal is available under this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/s5gehxqqbs1lyiq/20211221_European%20Carbon%20Farmers%20-%20Rolnictwo%20Neutralne%20Klimatycznie%20-%20propozycja%20powo%C5%82ania%20Grupy%20Roboczej_podpisane.pdf?dl=0 in Polish and under this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/umfx6i9wk0phrzb/20211221_European%20Carbon%20Farmers%20-%20Climate%20Neutral%20Agriculture%20-%20proposal%20of%20establishing%20Working%20Group%20on%20Net%20Zero%20and%20Nature%20Positive%20Agriculture.pdf?dl=0 in English.

    We are also one of the Partners in the MIDAS Project, which received co-funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement N° 101082070.

    In June 2023, in our effort to promote the EU Soil Mission in Poland, we organized a Parliamentary Dialogue on Soil Health. More information about the event here: https://www.sejm.gov.pl/Sejm9.nsf/agent.xsp?symbol=POSIEDZENIAZESP&Zesp=605.

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
