News on environmental zones and air pollution

Save money by fighting air pollution

Air pollution has direct and indirect costs for the economy (premature deaths, diseases...). Between 2018 and 2025, this could amount to around €475 billion according to a report commissioned by the European Commission. However, the problems do not have the same causes everywhere in Europe: if in the West, the main problem is transport, the main cause of air pollution in Eastern Europe is domestic heating. 187 billion euros could be saved in 7 years if rapid and concrete measures are implemented.
