Air – environmental quality

Official statistics of Sweden

The air pollutants that are commonly present in urban and rural air are mainly due to traffic, combustion and industrial processes. Data from Swedish municipalities on particulate matter (PM10 and PM2,5), nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, benzene, carbon monoxide, benzo(a)pyrene and certain metals are reported annually to the European Commission under Directive 2008/50/EC and Directive 2004/107/EC. Measurements in rural air and precipitation (e.g. ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxides) are conducted by the Swedish EPA.

These statistics are the responsibility of:
Swedish Environmental Protection Agency
