In May 2020, the Commission published its new EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2030, as an integral part of the Green Deal.
The new Biodiversity Strategy sets the objective to ensure that ‘by 2050 all of the world’s ecosystems are restored, resilient and adequately protected’, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate change.
The four pillars of the new EU Biodiversity Strategy are 1) to protect nature,2) to restore nature, 3) to enable transformative change and 4) to set an ambitious Global Agenda.
The EU Biodiversity Strategy represents also a significant contribution to Europe’s economic recovery. Investing in nature restoration and nature based solutions will create new jobs and provide fresh business opportunities for many sectors of the economy.
