Extracts from the press conference by Janez Potočnik, on the air quality package

111 views

On 18 December 2013, Janez Potočnik, Member of the EC in charge of Environment, gave a press conference on the EU Clean Air Policy Package. The human toll for poor air quality is worse than for road traffic accidents, making it the number one environmental cause of premature death in the EU. It also impacts the quality of life due to asthma or respiratory problems. The European Commission was responding with new measures to reduce air pollution, adopted today. The clean air policy package updates existing legislation and further reduces harmful emissions from industry, traffic, energy plants and agriculture, with a view to reducing their impact on human health and the environment.
