Oct 30, 2018 | News

(30 October 2018) – A new report published by the European Environment Agency presents an updated overview and analysis of air quality in Europe from 2000 to 2016.


The report reviews the progress made towards meeting the air quality standards established in the two EU Ambient Air Quality Directives and towards the World Health Organization (WHO) air quality guidelines (AQGs).

It also presents the latest findings and estimates on population and ecosystem exposure to the air pollutants with the greatest impacts and effects.

The evaluation of the status of air quality is based mainly on reported ambient air measurements, in conjunction with modelling data and data on anthropogenic emissions and their evolution over time.
