The Danish government also proposes a partial ban on farming on peat soils (through which carbon is being emitted). Denmark’s Social Democrat government plans to reduce carbon emissions by 70 percent in 2030 (compared to 1990 levels), going beyond the 55 percent target agreed to by European Union Member States.
