(AGENPARL) – BRUXELLES, ven 20 novembre 2020
The EU action plan toward a ‘zero pollution ambition’ is a key action of the European Green Deal scheduled for spring 2021. It will help to create a toxic-free environment across the EU by better monitoring, reporting, preventing and remedying pollution from air, water, soil, and consumer products. It will also support the post-COVID-19 recovery by helping to rebuild a more sustainable EU economy, creating job opportunities and reducing social inequalities.
The EU Green Week 2021 will be dedicated to the ‘zero pollution ambition’. It will also look at other relevant European Green Deal initiatives, such the climate initiatives, the upcoming Chemicals Strategy, as well as initiatives in the field of energy, industry, mobility, agriculture, fisheries, health and biodiversity.
The EU Green Week 2021 will be an opportunity to engage with all stakeholders and interested citizens on how we can work together to make the ambition for a zero pollution and toxic-free environment a reality.
