The ERS Environment and Health Committee coordinates the European Respiratory Society’s (ERS) activities in advocating for environmental health, to promote clean air and protect human health.
Environmental policy is a core EU activity and the committee is an active partner in forming policies at the EU level. The committee supports lower thresholds of acceptable levels of air pollution, stricter enforcement of existing EU legislation, advocates for exposure limits to occupational air pollution at the European level and notes the need for further research to fully understand the impact of particular factors on human health.
