EUROPIA position on the Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution COM(2005) 446

Posted on 01/02/2006 in Position Paper

Following its Sixth Environmental Action Plan, the Commission launched the Clean Air For Europe (CAFE) programme in 2001, which was completed in 2005 with the adoption of the Thematic Strategy on Air Pollution (TSAP)1. This Strategy sets the objectives of the Commission for further protecting human health and ecosystems against the effects of air pollution at the 2020 horizon, and evaluates the corresponding costs. Although not binding per se, these objectives represent an important commitment from the Commission, and will influence the subsequent Air Quality legislative initiatives.
