Michael Gove added: “Government cannot act alone in tackling air pollution. Our strategy sets out how we will work with businesses, farmers, industry and households to develop innovative new solutions to reduce emissions. It also highlights how we can all take action and playing an important role in cleaning up our air” External link

fleetnews Tuesday, May 22, 2018 10:16:00 AM CEST

Michael Gove said: "Air quality has improved significantly since 2010 but 60 years on from the historic Clean Air Act a clear truth remains - air pollution is making people ill, shortening lives and damaging our economy and environment. "This clean air strategy sets out the comprehensive action required across all parts of the government to improve air quality" External link

Mr Gove said: "It's critically important we make progress there, but it's also important we deal with other sources of air pollution, whether that's from slurry and manures spread on agricultural land or whether it's from wood burning or other ways people generate domestic fuel and power.

Marta Gajecka comments: “Air pollution is a big problem, especially in urban areas. Transport is of course a factor, but energy poverty in terms of home heating is also an issue. People are burning all sorts of things, including waste, to heat their homes and this is a big contributor to smog. Electrifying transport is one of many steps towards solving the problem” External link

Marta Gajecka says: “Obviously e-mobility will be good for our sector. It’s also part of a changing business model for electricity suppliers.

Increasing the automotive industry’s share of GDP through supporting e-mobility is a more important measure of success than the number of EVs on the road by 2025” External link

Matteo Zoppas prosegue: «quanto accaduto – nel totale rispetto per il lavoro della magistratura – evidenzia il formalismo su cui si fonda la normativa sulla gestione dei rifiuti in particolare, e quella ambientale in generale. Ci auguriamo che questo episodio possa stimolare una riflessione seria in merito ad una legislazione che ha bisogno di essere rivista in quanto fa prevalere gli aspetti formali, rispetto agli aspetti sostanziali di tutela dell’ambiente. Serve chiarezza, certezza normativa e soprattutto semplificazione altrimenti le conseguenze possono essere pesanti e portare, come si è visto, addirittura alla chiusura di uno stabilimento – (\*) – Se da un lato è giusto che il legislatore abbia inasprito le pene per chi provoca danni irreparabili all’ambiente, dall’altro sarebbe altrettanto giusto che rivedesse quelle norme che, per meri aspetti formali, costringono le attività produttive a blocchi o appesantimenti burocratici che non hanno alcuna rilevanza rispetto alla tutela dell’ambiente. Ciò vanifica gli sforzi che stiamo facendo per attirare nuovi investimenti sui nostri territori e mortifica gli impegni delle imprese che vogliono agire nella correttezza ed essere sempre eticamente responsabili» External link

Karmenu Vella said (about Caroline Lucas): “The decision to refer member states to the Court of Justice of the EU has been taken on behalf of Europeans. "We have said that this Commission is one that protects. Our decision follows through on that claim. "The member states referred to the Court today have received sufficient 'last chances' over the last decade to improve the situation. "It is my conviction that today's decision will lead to improvements for citizens on a much quicker timescale". The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) said the UK was one of 22 EU states exceeding NO2 limits. It said the main reason for non-compliance was the failure of European standards for diesel cars to deliver the expected reductions in emissions. A Defra spokesman said: "We continue to meet EU air quality limits for all pollutants apart from nitrogen dioxide, and data shows we are improving thanks to our efforts to bring levels of NO2 down. "We will shortly build on our £3.5 billion plan to tackle roadside emissions with a comprehensive Clean Air Strategy setting out a wide range of actions to reduce pollution from all sources". Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas welcomed the Commission action. "This announcement is good news for all those suffering from chronic air pollution," said Ms Lucas.

La nostra decisione dà seguito a questa affermazione. Gli Stati membri deferiti oggi alla Corte hanno ricevuto nell’ultimo decennio un numero sufficiente di ‘ultime possibilità’ per migliorare la situazione. Sono convinto che la decisione di oggi porterà a miglioramenti per i cittadini in tempi molto più rapidi. Ma l’azione legale non risolverà di per sé il problema.

Raffaele Cattaneo proseguito: “Le polveri sottili – (\*) – sono particolarmente critiche nelle aree urbane e sviluppare la mobilità ciclistica in queste zone è uno strumento utile per sostenere politiche ambientali di miglioramento della qualità dell’aria. Il progetto europeo Life Prepair per la qualità dell’aria del Bacino Padano sostiene iniziative a favore della mobilità ciclistica. La Lombardia sta camminando nella direzione giusta con percorsi che favoriscono il rilancio della mobilità ciclistica che ricomincia ad essere una opportunità nelle scelte di spostamento dei cittadini. Le piste ciclabile servono anche per garantire la sicurezza di chi si sposta in bici: favorire scelte di trasporto più compatibili con l’ambiente garantendo anche la sicurezza sono due modalità efficaci per incentivare l’utilizzo di questo mezzo di trasporto” External link
