Just Agriculture, Alimentation Sovereignty and Forest Use

Reform of the immission protection law

What's the problem?

In the Federal Immission Protection Law (FIPL, German: BImSchG)  the impact of immission on climate change only plays a subordinated role.

What's the measure?

Climate protection is given high priority in the examination of immission control permits, which is carried out by the trade supervisory authorities. The Federal Immission Protection Law will be modified in such a way that all agricultural and food-processing operations that have a high degree of negative impact on the climate and are not essential for supplying the population may no longer be licensed. The applicants* are obligated to provide evidence. Nature- and environmental protection associations, local residents and those affected by climate change will be granted a comprehensive right of complaint, the use of which does not represent a financial risk for them.

How can the implementation look like?

The Federal Ministry decides on a reform of the Federal Immission Protection Law and submits it to the Bundestag.
