Air and noise pollution

01-02-2018

Air pollution and excessive noise harm our health and our environment. Air pollution mainly stems from industry, transport, energy production and agriculture. The EU air quality strategy aims to achieve full compliance with existing air quality legislation by 2020 and sets long-term objectives for 2030. The Environmental Noise Directive helps to identify noise levels in the EU and to take the necessary measures to reduce them to acceptable levels. Separate legislation regulates air and noise pollution from specific sources.
