In the run up for the voting of the European Parliament (EP) on the EU Thematic Strategy on Quality, and the accompanying directive on ambient air quality , on the 21 June, European Public Health Alliance (EPHA), EPHA Environment Network (EEN) and EFA sent a joint letter to the MEPs in the Environment and Health Committee (ENVI) to remind not to follow the EP Rapporteur of this file and compromise, and calling for higher level of ambition, no weakening of PM10 (particulate matter) standards, new legally binding limit value or minimum 20% reduction of PM2.5 exposure. The reduction of the adverse health effects of air pollution is an important objective where the EU can show that it really makes a positive difference to people's everyday lives or alternatively where it utterly fails.
