Nutrients in water bodies in the EU-27

The figure shows aggregated time series for monitoring sites (surface waters) or water bodies (groundwater). Only complete time series are included. The selected time series are aggregated by averaging across all sites for each year.

Nutrient levels in European seas, 2012 - 2017

Results of classification of Eutrophication Status using the HEAT+ tool. Eutrophication status is evaluated in five classes, where NPAhigh and NPAgood are recognised as ‘non-problem areas’ and PAmoderate, PApoor and PAbad are recognised as ‘problem areas’.

EU methane emissions (Mt) based on various IPCC global warming potentials, 2020

The figure shows the 100-year Global Warming Potential (GWPs) of CH₄ from the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Report 2, 4 and 5 (AR2, AR4, AR5), together with the AR5’s 20-year GWP. The 100-year values are used to allow comparison with other greenhouse gases (GHGs) reported in the inventories and have been agreed by the Parties for reporting under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement.

Combined risk to health from road traffic noise and nitogen dioxide (NO2) levels (example of Brussels)

The map presents the combined risk to health from road traffic noise and fine particulate matter (PM2.5)/ Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels. The white areas show an average combined risk across the cities included in this tool. In the blue areas, the combined risks are lower, while in the orange and red areas the combined risks are higher. Using this map, citizens can better understand the environmental quality of their neighborhoods.

Timetrend of data from the German Environmental Specimen Bank for PFOS and PFOA

This shows the geometric mean (normalised to 1986) levels of Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in human subjects.

Premature deaths in the EU per 100,000 population by age range for both air pollution and lead exposure, 2019

This is based on data taken from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) database which models health impacts based on exposure to a range of environmental risk factors. In this case we look at air pollution and lead.

Trends in population-weighted average annual concentrations of PM2.5 in the most disadvantaged and least disadvantaged quintiles of EU-27 NUTS 3 regions, 2007-2019

The graph represents the trend of annual average annual concentrations of particles of a diameter of less than 2.5 microns in ambient air concentration, weighted by population, by year and for the entire EU, for the richest quintile (top 20% in terms of GDP, gross domestic product, per capita) and the poorest quintile (bottom 20% in terms of GDP per capita). In the graph, one can see that both the richest regions and the poorest regions in the EU are improving their air quality (i.e. PM₂.₅ concentrations are decreasing), but the richest are doing so from lower starting levels and significantly faster than the poorest.

Percentage of samples from the most commonly consumed food groups in Europe complying with legislation on pesticide residue levels

The diagram presents the percentage of samples from the most commonly-consumed food groups in Europe that were compliant with pesticide residues below or equal to the legal limit, higher than the legal limit or non-compliant.
