Netherlands: Dutch Parliament Approves Law to Reduce Nitrogen Emissions

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On December 17, 2020, the Dutch Parliament approved a new law that aims to curb nitrogen emissions in the Netherlands. The Netherlands Agricultural and Horticultural Association (LTO) -- the representative of 35,000 Dutch agricultural entrepreneurs and employers -- stated that even though the law will be challenging for the Dutch agricultural sector, it was pleased that some flexibilities were eventually incorporated. With the absence of concrete compulsory measures for the agricultural sector, however, it is difficult to determine the full effect the nitrogen law might have on the Dutch livestock industry.
