Representatives from the Administration, companies and the academic world share the opinion that there is a need to continue implementing measures to reduce the pollution rates in cities, during a conference held in Seville.
Representatives from the Spanish government, the Valencia Regional Government, the Council of the capital of Turia, the Naturgy Foundation and the UIMP met today to discuss the issue of urban pollution as a priority for improving people’s quality of life.
Every year, the Valencia Regional Government assigns €700,000 to the maintenance of the Atmospheric Pollution Surveillance and Control Network of Valencia.
Together with Berlin and the region of Lombardy, the City Council of Madrid presented the plans they have implemented to combat urban pollution and improve air quality at an event where the WHO warned that 91% of the global population is breathing in polluted air.
Poor air quality in the EU represents an annual cost of 24 billion euros, said Daniel Calleja, Director-General for the Environment of the European Commission.
On 8 April the Naturgy Foundation and Pepe the robot took part in the 2019 Inspirational Festival, organised by IAB Spain and held at the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, to convey the company’s commitment to innovation and show how atmospheric pollution is a key factor in determining the health of people and the environment.
