Council adopts conclusions on air quality

The Council adopted today its conclusions on air quality, with the aim of providing political guidance for further work on combatting air pollution.

The conclusions stress the need for coherence between clean air policy and other relevant policy areas, so that air quality objectives should be fully reflected in EU emission source legislation and in the design of new initiatives under the European Green Deal, including smart mobility, smart sector integration, renewable energy, renovation of buildings, residential heating, agriculture and industry.

The Council has also supported the Commission’s intention to take further action towards zero-emission mobility and to propose more stringent emissions standards for petrol and diesel vehicles, also taking into account pollutants that are not yet regulated, as well as to reduce emission from maritime transport and to improve air quality in ports and near airports.
