No Planet B

The Silesian region generates 40 percent of greenhouse gas emissions in Poland, and houses four of the most polluting cities in the area. Households are the main source of pollution, which poses a challenge to policymakers who must support residents to change their consumption patterns. The region is partnering with North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany to learn about innovative models for energy transition. This partnership has supported the region to make a change – this past year, an anti-smog provision has been passed together with a law mandating the use of high quality boilers. “The region is committed to reducing pollution and transiting to clean energy,” says Henryk Mercik, Vize-Marshall of the Silesian Voivodeship, because “there can be no plan B as there is no Planet B.’’
