Agriculture and the Environment

Vi need to reform our agricultural ways, both in terms of climate, food production, financing, and the role of which agriculture plays in our society.

Volt Europa: We Need Regenerative Farming!

Volt address root causes and seek solutions to real problems. Many farmers are engaging with the climate agenda, introducing new crops, changed practices but are also faced with higher costs and negative spiralling debt cycles.

Volt wants to ensure sustainable practices and an environmentally sustainable future. To that end, we need regenerative farming and a new way of addressing our farming community.

Reforming the CAP!

Under the current rules, innovative solutions such as vertical farming are not supported under EU schemes because they take up little space. We need a reform of the agricultural package NOW.

Volt is running for the European Parliament elections to tackle our big challenges and we're taking a holistic approach to our challenges!

CO2 tax fit for the future!

Volt is committed to working towards climate neutrality in energy production and use by 2035.

This begins by introducing the targets and pathways to decarbonise Europe, including our carbon pricing policy, one of the main instruments to achieve decarbonisation.

Volt aims to fairly distribute the burden of these policies, based on the principle that the responsibility to act should be proportional to the damage done and profit gained by all parties alike, companies, institutions, and people across the world.

Sustainable Fisheries

Volt prioritises the protection and conservation of marine life and ocean ecosystems. We advocate for sustainable fishing practices, the establishment of marine protected areas, and the reduction of plastic pollution. We support international cooperation to address global challenges and aim to promote awareness and education about the importance of marine ecosystems. ​ Volt's ambitions include phasing out harmful fishing practices, protecting marine habitats, and ensuring the sustainability and resilience of ocean ecosystems. ​

Animal Welfare in Agriculture

Part of sustainable agriculture is better treatment of our farm animals. Volt will strongly regulate the transport of farm animals within EU borders and completely ban longer journeys that take farm animals out of the EU.

Time to think holistically when it comes to our agriculture!

Food Security

These policies reflect Volt's commitment to promoting sustainable and ethical food systems that protect the environment, support farmers, and ensure the well-being of animals.

Volt supports the Stop Ecocide campaign

Recognising ecocide as a crime supports and strengthens existing EU environmental legislation in all member states, creates safeguards for economic activity and allows for strategic change and innovation in politics and industry!

This is a legal and moral opportunity for the EU to lead the world in protecting life on earth: for us, for our children and for all living beings.

Volt's 5+1 focus areas

We have big challenges, but we can solve them together when we work together!

See Volt Denmark's policy
  • 01

    Smart State

    An innovative state takes care of its citizens and is at the same time ready with flexible solutions. We will therefore strengthen both our digital AND our human solutions.

  • 02

    Economic rebirth

    In order to meet the challenges of the future, we must rethink the economy in Europe. From the labor market to our monetary and financial policy.

  • 03

    Citizen involvement and democracy

    We want to strengthen the individual citizen's voice in everyday life. It is a failure of democracy if citizens are only listened to at election time.

  • 04

    Social Equality

    Volt wants an equal society where the individual potential can be unleashed, and here Volt wants to take the lead and take greater responsibility.

  • 05

    Global Balance

    The western world is responsible for a large emission of CO2 and therefore we must also be at the forefront of developing solutions.

  • +1

    EU reform

    We have a vision for Europe that guarantees equal access to education, healthcare and social protection and employment opportunities for all. A Europe where citizens have the same rights and can trust that everyone contributes and benefits equally from their commitment.
