The consultation follows the recent publication of the roadmap that outlines EU plans to achieve zero pollution by better preventing, treating, monitoring and reporting on pollution, and helping to mainstream the ambition in all policies and investment tools.

The purpose of this consultation is to gather views from citizens and stakeholders on an EU Action Plan “Towards a Zero Pollution Ambition for air, water and soil”. The European Green Deal announced that, in order to protect Europe’s citizens and ecosystems, the EU needs to move towards a zero pollution ambition, and improve on the prevention and treatment of pollution from air, water, soil, and consumer products.
