EU strikes deal to strengthen air quality standards.

The European Parliament and EU member states have agreed to strengthen air quality standards across the EU, setting 2030 pollutant limits and target values closer to WHO guidelines.
The new rules aim to reduce deaths from fine particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and short-term ozone (O3) exposure, which caused 253,000 deaths in 2021, particularly for heart disease patients.
