EU’s environment committee backs new round of air quality targets for 2025 and 2030, and tougher rules on emissions testing, reports BusinessGreen

Governments across the EU could soon face a new round of tough new air pollution targets, after MEPs on the European parliament’s environment committee narrowly voted in favour of fresh round of air quality standards.

The committee on Wednesday voted 38 in favour and 28 against, backing a new package of measures that would require member states to meet limits on six pollutants by 2030.
