Back to all Network Members

Italy’s Lombardy region is home to 10 million people and generates about 1/5 of the nation’s GDP, making sustainable development essential for both environment and economy. In 2013, the region adopted an Air Quality Plan with 91 measures to reduce emissions. The plan has been successful and air quality is improving. Lombardy is committed to continuing action and eager to share successful solutions.

“Lombardy Region took charge of the air pollution question, establishing a diffuse emissions system, implementing long-term planning measures, cooperating with municipalities and neighboring regions… we have realized that transparency is a core value.”

Claudia Maria Terzi, Minister for Environment, Energy and Sustainable Development of Lombardy Region
