Promoting a prosperous and attractive European countryside.

The ELO's national constituent organizations in the enlarged European Union and in the Candidate Countries represent millions of landowners throughout Europe. The ELO seeks to develop European solutions to the challenges which will face European decision-makers in the years to come, in particular now that the European Union has welcomed ten new Member States. At the same time the ELO, supported by its Secretariat in Brussels, is best placed to advise on draft European legislation which affects those who live and work in the countryside.
For ELO, Carbon Sequestration has to be rewarded in accordance with its significant contribution to emission reduction targets. This is why ELO and the CLA, together with the University of East Anglia, launched a research project called CLIO, Climate Limitations Impacts and Options, monitoring the greenhouse gas impact of land management activities. This in turn led to the creation of the CLA CALM calculator. CALM means Carbon Accounting for Land Managers. A web-based version was created jointly by the CLA and Savills Research with funding from East of England Development Agency, this calculator helps land managers work out the balance of greenhouse gases emitted by their farming business, and carbon stored in their trees and soil
