Let’s tackle air pollution at all levels, starting now with the NEC Directive

The European Parliament’s environment committee should be ambitious when it votes on the National Emissions Ceilings (NEC) Directive next week, write Lot van Hooijdonk and Karen Vancluysen.

Member states must help clean up the air in our cities

It’s high time that member states step up their air quality measures to support cities’ local actions. A stronger directive on national emissions ceilings is essential to make it happen. Withdrawing the Commission proposal now would further delay action we should take to protect our citizens’ health, writes Lot van Hooijdonk.
