Contribute to the CoR opinion on the future of EU clean air policy

The EU Committee of the Regions (CoR) is preparing an Outlook opinion "The Future of EU Clean Air policy in the framework of the zero-pollution ambition".

The zero-pollution ambition is one of the main environmental priorities of the European Green Deal and includes the proposal of a zero-pollution action plan for water, air and soil, scheduled for 2021.

The rapporteur Mr János Ádám Karácsony (HU/EPP), Member of Tahitótfalu Council and member of the CoR Commission for Environment, Climate Change and Energy (ENVE), has prepared a draft opinion that you can find here in all the EU official languages.

The Opinion is scheduled for adoption at the ENVE meeting of 8 June 2020 and then for final approval at the Plenary Session of 1-2 July 2020.

The rapporteur strives for the highest possible quality input and widest range of different views for his opinion and we believe your expertise can contribute to achieving this objective. There is still the possibility of presenting amendments.

If you have a written contribution, please send it by 15 May to and it will be forwarded to the rapporteur for his consideration.

The CoR in 2019 has organized a consultation on air quality in the framework of the Pilot project of the Regional Hubs network to better assess the implementation of EU air policies at local and regional level. You can find the report and the executive summary at the following links:
