File chemical/x-pdb 50 years of protecting Europe's environment
Today the European Union has the most environmentally friendly arsenal of rules in the world and has done more to tackle pressing ecological problems, such as climate change, than any other major power. But it has not always been like this. Caring for the environment did not feature in the Treaty of Rome, the document that gave birth to the modern day EU. Yet environmental problems were never far away. Europe’s love affair with the car was moving into top gear, industry was busy belching out pollutants and raw sewage was being pumped into our rivers and seas.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in biota measured in the North East Atlantic, Baltic Sea and Mediterranean Sea; 1998-2010
The figure consists of seven maps showing the four regional seas, one map for each contaminant. Each map shows the locations where the contaminant was measured, and coloured to indicate which class was registered; green (Low concentration), yellow (Moderate concentration) or red (High concentration). In addition a pie chart is presented on the map showing the percent of each class within each of the four regional seas. Furthermore, any regional trend for a particular class is indicated by an arrow.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in marine organisms in regional seas around Europe; 1998-2012
The figure consists of eight maps showing available data for the North East Atlantic ocean, Baltic sea, Black Sea and Mediterranean sea; one map for each contaminant. Each map shows the locations where the contaminant was measured, and coloured to indicate which class was registered; green (Low concentration), yellow (Moderate concentration) or red (High concentration). In addition a pie chart is presented on the map showing the percent of each class within each of the four regional seas. Furthermore, any regional trend for a particular class is indicated by an arrow.

Figure Aggregated assessment of hazardous substances in biota measured in the North East Atlantic, Baltic Sea, and Mediterranean Sea
The pies show the proportion of stations on map with low (green), moderate (yellow) and high (red) concentrations in the latest monitoring year for each of the seven hazardous substances. In the case of the three metals the boundary between moderate and high is set using foodstuff limits. The arrow indicates the general trend for each category where one can be identified

Article Air legislation in Europe
Air pollution is not the same everywhere. Different pollutants are released into the atmosphere from a wide range of sources. Once in the atmosphere, they can transform into new pollutants and spread around the world. Designing and implementing policies to address this complexity are not easy tasks. Below is an overview of air legislation in the European Union.
