Air quality
Various surveys show that the inhabitants of Brussels are aware of what reducing air pollution entails in terms of mobility and consumption.

The concentration of pollutants in the ambient air in real time (FR/NL) can be checked on the Bruxelles Environnement Qualité de l'Air website. All data is provided by the Brussels-Capital Region’s telemetry network.

What to do during peak pollution

When the concentration of dangerous pollutants in the air reaches a certain value, emergency procedures must be launched by the Region’s authorities. The procedures during peak pollution (FR/NL) for private individuals, businesses, industry and transport companies are also published on the Qualité de l'Air website.
