Taking EU targets seriously: Pesticide tax could halve use of pesticides according to study.

Bochum/Leipzig, 4.10.2021 – Under the Green Deal, the European Commission aims to reduce chemical pesticides use by 50 percent by 2030. A study by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) commissioned by a broad alliance of NGOs and a bank supporting sustainable investment strategies uses the example of Germany to show how a pesticide levy can achieve this goal.
