Attitudes of Europeans towards air quality

External Data Spec Published 13 Jan 2014
Air quality is a major concern for Europeans, and is an area where the EU has been particularly active for more than 30 years. The EU's key objective in relation to air quality is "to achieve levels of air quality that do not result in unacceptable impacts on, and risks to, human health and the environment." The EU has already in place a range of legislation and initiatives to improve air quality by controlling harmful emissions and implementing measures in the transport, industry and energy sectors to protect the environment. In addition, air pollution is one of the key issues included as part of the European Commission's proposal for a new Environment Action Programme (EAP) to 2020, "Living well, within the limits of our planet".
