Forests, nature and carbon removals in Europe

​ ​ 

The European Union wants to slash its greenhouse gas emissions but also boost the amount of carbon it removes from the atmosphere in order to prevent drastic global warming – and healthy forests have a big part to play in this.

To do this, EU countries need to revive their nature, including restoring and planting forests, and make sure carbon removals are done in a way that benefits the environment and does not allow companies or countries to greenwash.

In this special report, Euractiv looks at how the EU’s Nature Restoration Law and Carbon Removals Certification Framework can make this a reality.
