Target 6 - The risk and use of chemical pesticides is reduced by 50%, and the use of more hazardous pesticides is reduced by 50%.

Updated on: 2021-12-14


Deadline: 2030

Summary: The European Commission announced two pesticide reduction targets as part to the Farm to Fork Strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 in May 2020. These are a 50% reduction in the use and risk of chemical pesticides and a 50% reduction in the use of more hazardous pesticides. Ensuring progress to this target can be supported by a range of measures, including ongoing efforts to strengthen pesticide risk assessment and authorisation. The Commission will also encourage improved use of integrated pest management (including under the CAP) and increased efficiency of pesticide use, as well as improved data collection. Additional long-term actions to strengthen integrated pest management and data collection are being considered in the ongoing revision of the Sustainable Use of Pesticides Directive. Each year, the Commission will publish progress at European Union level towards meeting both targets.
