This European country has the cleanest air in the world
“For a long time, we’ve been implementing environmental protections in industrial sectors,” Pia Anttila of the Meteorological Institute said, according to Culture Trip. She explained that the country's “cars are also relatively good when you compare to the average global automobile.”
The WHO estimates that over 7 million people die each year due to poor air quality and exposure to the fine particles in the polluted air. The organization also reports that over 90% of those deaths occur in low-income countries in Asia and Africa, however most large, urban cities in the world are at risk.
“Many of the world’s megacities exceed WHO’s guideline levels for air quality by more than five times, representing a major risk to people’s health,” Dr. Maria Neira, director of the Department of Public Health, Social and Environmental Determinants of Health at WHO said.
Just behind Finland for the freshest air are Estonia, Sweden, Canada, Norway and Iceland.
