Many factors impact the state of the environment in the Brussels-Capital Region, including the number of inhabitants, the number of people in work, how they get around, the type of businesses, the built-up area and the amount of green space.
Brussels, sustainable city
Sustainable development (FR/NL) is an environmentally friendly form of economic and social development that meets the needs of today without compromising the capacity of future generations to meet theirs.
The Brussels-Capital Region’s sustainable development policy (FR/NL) is based on various pieces of very specific legislation relating to development, urban planning, mobility and the environment.
Air pollution is felt to be one of the most worrying environmental issues by the majority of Brussels inhabitants. They seem to be ready to ensure that the authorities adopt a number of even more restrictive measures.
