Today, the European Parliament’s Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety voted on the revision of the EU’s Ambient Air Quality Directive (AAQD) (2022/0347(COD)). 

The report by rapporteur Javi Lopez was adopted with 46 in favour, 41 against and 1 abstention, with all compromise amendments adopted. 

Anne Stauffer, Deputy Director of the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) comments:

“The ENVI committee has taken a major step towards cleaner air for everyone today: health groups are delighted that MEPs followed the science, and people’s needs by supporting an ambitious overhaul of the EU’s clean air standards.

Clean air is a question of political will, not an individual or lifestyle choice. This political will now needs to show in the European Parliament plenary.”
