Air quality in Paris

Air quality in Paris

 

Paris is not considered to be an unbreathable capital, as you might describe Athens, Mexico, or even London, once known as the “Big Smoke”. The quality of the air is something that cannot be ignored: as it may cause irritation of our airways or breathing difficulties and also contributes to the erosion of monuments.

 

An ambitious project to fight air pollution in France. In 2011, Paris and five other French cities will ban old diesel cars, 4X4s and trucks.

 

 

Surveillance

Air of Paris

Since 1954, the air in Paris is being constantly monitored, a job entrusted since 1979 to the AIRPARIF organization, under the authorization of the Department for the Environment. The quality of the air is displayed on a daily basis on electronic boards throughout the city, on a scale from 1 (very good) to 10 (very poor) corresponding to international standards set down by the OMS and the European Commission.

When levels of pollution are high, the population is alerted by the media. These warnings concern in particular anyone with existing conditions, children, older people, or pregnant women. At the same time we are advised against outdoor sporting activities. Despite these occasional warnings, consultation of yearly statistics indicates an air quality that is generally good.
