The figure shows the premature deaths attributed to long-term exposure to PM2.5 above the 2021 World Health Organization (WHO) guideline level in EU-27 in the period 2005-2020. The linear trend of that time series and the estimated year by which the Zero Pollution Action Plan (ZPAP) target (by 2030, minimum 55% reduction of the premature deaths occurred in 2005) would be met if the premature deaths are reduced following that linear trend.

Additional information

The continue line shows the number of premature deaths attributed to exposure to PM2.5, in the period 2005-2020.
The dotted line shows the estimation of the evolution in the number of premature deaths attributed to PM2.5 assuming a linear trend in the time series 2005-2020.
The horizontal line represents the Zero Pollution Action Plan target for 2030: 55% of the premature deaths in 2005. The 2030 ZPAP target would be attained in 2026, when the horizontal and dotted lines cross.
