Farmers for Climate Action see direct benefits to farmers from EU trade deal

Farmers for Climate Action, a farmer-led organization focused on climate change, says strong climate policy can help deliver Australian farmers a “great trade deal” with the EU.

According to Farmers for Climate Action CEO Dr Fiona Davis Australia’s beef, lamb and dairy farmers will directly benefit from such a deal.

“EU Trade Commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis has now clearly stated climate change targets will be part of any trade deal between Australia and the EU. The EU has much more ambitious climate targets than Australia – 55% below 1990 levels by 2030,” Dr Davis said.

“The EU Trade Commissioner has also made it clear that Australia’s farmers may face trade sanctions if Australia does not catch up on climate. The EU and other markets have warned of a carbon border tariff on Australia unless we catch up on climate and now this is becoming reality.

“Let’s not miss the opportunity to seal a great trade deal for our farmers by pushing deep emissions reductions this decade. Strong climate policy creates strong regional and tens of thousands of regional jobs.

“The farmers who grow our food do not deserve to be punished for the emissions of the energy and transport sectors.

“Farmers have been waiting for better access to the huge EU market for years. We want bigger quotas for our beef, lamb and dairy farmers. The EU trade deal represents a huge opportunity for them, and strong climate policy brings huge opportunity to regional Australia,” Dr Davis concluded.

Farmers for Climate Action describes itself as a movement of 7000 farmers calling for strong economy-wide climate policies.
