Climate change policies beneficial for European air quality

Newsitem | 06-06-2006

European climate change action will benefit air pollution abatement by 2030, with costs for controlling emissions dropping by EUR 10 billion per year. Reduced emissions will lead to a fall in damage to public health (e.g. 20 000 fewer premature deaths per year) and to ecosystems. These are the main conclusions of a European Environment Agency report, Air quality and ancillary benefits of climate change policies, co-ordinated by the MNP.
