European Commission

The European Commission proposes laws, makes sure EU laws are properly applied, and manages EU spending programs.

The EU soil strategy for 2030 sets out a framework and concrete measures to protect and restore soils, and ensure that they are used sustainably. It sets a vision and objectives to achieve healthy soils by 2050, with concrete actions by 2030.

The EU soil strategy aims to ensure that, by 2050

  • all EU soil ecosystems are healthy and more resilient and can therefore continue to provide their crucial services
  • there is no net land take and soil pollution is reduced to levels that are no longer harmful to people’s health or ecosystems
  • protecting soils, managing them sustainably and restoring degraded soils is a common standard
