As a member of the European Landowners' Organization, the Federation has a voice in decisions made in Europe, concerning rules and regulations on EU policy areas like Agriculture and Rural Development and also those of Forestry, Nature and the Environment. It is of great importance that FPG informs and convinces not only the decision makers in Brussels, but also the appropriate policy makers in The Hague. For it is a well known fact that many European political decisions for the Netherlands originate from The Hague.

For centuries, private landowners have been taking care of a vital and attractive countryside. They do so with inspiration and entrepreneurship. Energetically, professionally and committed, they take social responsibility for a sustainable production of food and raw materials, conservation of cultural heritage, landscape diversity, conservation of a rich biodiversity and natural resources. The FPG joins forces and looks after the interests of private land managers, aimed at the conservation and development of a balanced countryside in the Netherlands. FPG has a mission based on the basis of its conviction that private landownership is the key to the development and conservation of a vital and attractive countryside in a highly urbanised country.
