Our ambition to make all soils healthy by 2050 is essential to fight climate change, ensure our forests are healthy, our water clean and our land rich, fertile and resilient. We are taking decisive action to protect and nurture this non-recoverable natural resource, which we cannot afford to lose.

Virginijus Sinkevičius, Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries

existence. It is the foundation for 95% of the food we eat. Soil is a living ecosystem that is key for life on the planet and that holds our future. It is high time it gets the legal protection it deserves.

Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President for the European Green Deal
