On 27 April 2021, EuChemS answered to the Public Consultation on the new EU soil strategy. Citizens and organisations in Europe were invited to contribute to this survey on the ‘good’ soil practices to avoid soil mismanagement and degradation.
The European Commission proposed a soil assessment to evaluate the state of degradation of soil in the EU. In addition, EuChemS emphasised the balance of micro and macro elements of the soil.
EuChemS also mentioned the importance of soil research and knowledge enhancement, increased financial incentive to encourage new soil protection projects and introduced binding restoration targets for degraded soil.
