New agreement to reduce pollution

The European Union reached a new international agreement on 7th May to update the Gothenburg Protocol, aimed at tackling air pollution.

Danish EU Presidency and the EU Environment Commissioner issued a joint statement welcoming the new international agreement with Norway, Switzerland and the United States.

The Gothenburg Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone was adopted in 1999. It sets emission ceilings for four pollutants: sulfur, oxides of nitrogen (NOx), volatile compounds (VOCs) and ammonia.
