Air quality report
Clean air is of the utmost importance for human health, quality of life and the environment, and is recognised as a pressing sustainability concern and is directly mentioned in two Sustainable Development Goals. According to the World Health Organisation, air pollution is the greatest environmental health risk in Europe and affects regions, socio-economic and age groups in different ways, causing, according to the latest estimates by the European Environment Agency, around 400,000 premature deaths per year. This is confirmed by the Report on the implementation of the Ambient Air Quality Directives for which Javi López was rapporteur.
A significant number of Member States consistently fail to meet existing air quality standards and have not taken sufficient measures to improve air quality and minimise excessive values. To this end, the Report proposes ensuring that the fight against air pollution is at the heart of the Recovery Plan and integrated into all EU legislation, as well as more and better measurement of air quality and stricter measures for the most polluting industries.

Report on combating inequality as a lever for growth and the creation of jobs
Increasing inequalities are one of the main causes of the challenges that are shaking Europe today, such as populism, xenophobia and extremism, among others. This idea is developed by the European Parliament report on Combating the inequality as a lever for growth and the creation of jobs of which Javi López was the rapporteur.
According to the report, inequality not only erodes social confidence and public support for institutions, it also frustrates innovation and ends up undermining the economy itself. Therefore, the report proposes a battery of policies in regards to the labour market, the improvement of the Welfare State or the promotion of gender equality to stop the increase of inequalities.
