The “One for all, all for one” scenario talks about energy efficiency. In Europe we have seen air policy work: air pollution has decreased in the EU over the last decades. Thanks to joint efforts by the EU and the Member States, emissions decreased since 2000 by 10% to 70% depending on the air pollutant, and all of this during a period of continued economic growth. The EU is working with the Member States to address the air quality challenge. Examples for action include further decarbonisation of our energy sector and a focus on means to reduce air pollution in our urban areas. This includes reduction of overall traffic volumes, use of cleaner fuels, acceleration of the switch to cleaner cars, introduction of urban access restriction schemes, promotion of better functioning and clean public transport and of safe bike paths, and other alternative individual mobility solutions.
Finally, the video “Our circular community” is about the circular economy. The European Union is the first region in the world to address this topic with a comprehensive package of actions for the next years.
