ACR+ joined forces with the European Biogas Association, the European Compost Network, and the European Biochar Industry Consortium to send to EU legislators a joint letter strongly advising them to integrate in the body of the proposed Soil Monitoring and Resilience Directive the following interlinked aspects:

  • To introduce a binding legal target for soil health to be achieved by 2050 and set intermediate targets for 2030 and 2040.
  • To include guiding schemes on minimum spatial coverage for soils’ ecological status monitoring to which each member state should comply with.
  • To require soil district authorities to establish soil district plans including a set of sustainable soil management practices to be implemented (Article 9) within 3 years from entering into force of the Directive, with regular updates every 5 years thereafter.
  • To require the Commission to provide knowledge and assistance to Member States and soil districts competent authorities regarding the implementation of sustainable soil management practices as part of the soil district plans (articles 9 and 10).
