A zero pollution ambition for a toxic-free environment

Pollution harms our health and our environment and is the largest environmental cause of multiple mental and physical diseases and of premature deaths, especially among children, people with certain medical conditions and the elderly. Therefore, the EU's Action Plan: 'Towards Zero Pollution for Air, Water and Soil' set outs ambitious of reducing the negative health impacts, plastic waste, use of chemical pesticides and much more, as we move towards a Europe without pollution. To support that work, it is essential to include the citizens of Europe.
