In 2020, the European Commission introduced the Farm to Fork Strategy to redesign EU food systems to be more ‘fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly’ and thus advance the 2030 targets of the European Green Deal.

Critical to successfully implementing the Farm to Fork Strategy is ensuring alignment with the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and putting European farmers first. A harmonised CAP, Farm to Fork Strategy and Biodiversity Strategy that enables farmers to implement sustainable agricultural practices while improving their profitability can help guarantee the long-term availability of sustainable biomass and unleash the potential of the bioeconomy.

In this position paper created in collaboration with our coalition partners, Avril, DB Schenker, Lantmännen, Scania, Shell and Yara, we explore how the CAP and Farm to Fork Strategy can use results-based incentives to encourage farmers to measure and improve the performance of the practices they are implementing. With appropriate rewards and support to be profitable, farmers can help increase the availability and sustainability of biomass, unlocking the potential of the European bioeconomy.
