Close links between air pollution and climate action
Actions taken to reduce emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases often address the same economic sectors but are reported separately under different EU legislation.
A new briefing from the European Environment Agency (EEA) presents an overview of the latest policies and measures reported by member states to tackle air pollution, and also looks at synergies with the policies reported under the EU Regulation on a mechanism for monitoring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions (Monitoring Mechanism Regulation), highlighting the importance of coherence between these domains.
