Environmental Health & Climate Change

CPME Chair of Working Group: Dr Martin BALZAN (MT)
CPME Secretariat: Mr Markus KUJAWA

Climate change affects also human health. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions through better transport, energy, and food choices can result in better health, especially through reduced air pollution. CPME contributes to the debate on climate change to highlight the implications for health through its collaboration with the Lancet Countdown. CPME also calls on the policymakers to make the EU air quality standards more stringent, fully aligned with the latest WHO recommendations.
