Air quality is a major factor affecting human health, thus ensuring good quality of air is a priority of Poland’s environmental policy. Investment in modern technologies in connection with the modernisation of industrial plants and the energy sector, as well as the development of the transport infrastructure, have ensured that the intensive development of Poland’s economy over the past two decades has not increased emissions. Monitoring of air quality in Poland shows that, like in many other European countries, the problems of ensuring proper air quality arise mainly in urbanised areas.
