This policy briefing from the Changing Markets Foundation argues that it will be very difficult for the European Union to meet its 2030 methane reduction targets without bringing in extra measures in the meat and dairy industries. 36% of the EU’s methane reductions could come from the agricultural sector, it estimates.
Read the full briefing, High Steaks: How focusing on agriculture can ensure that the EU meets its methane reduction goals, here or here (PDF link). The briefing is based on the longer report Methane reduction potential in the EU between 2020 and 2030 by Dutch consultancy CE Delft.
