The Air Quality Programme of the Gothenburg Region

The Air Quality Programme is a platform for regional environmental work focusing on air quality and a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences. The programme is based on co-operation between local councils and companies in the region. Cooperation with the Administrative boards of the provinces of Västra Götaland, Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg among others, are also involved in the program.

The aim of the program is to...

  • provide an overview of air quality in the region
  • provide reference material for the assessment of environmental and health effects
  • present measurement results as reference material for spatial planning
  • act as an advisory board on air quality issues
  • provide an information service on air quality in the region
  • work actively to improve air quality in the region
