Resumen

This paper analyses the role of macroeconomic performance in shaping the evolution
of air pollutants in a panel of European countries from 1990 to 2000. The
analysis is addressed in connection with EU environmental regulation and taking into
account macroeconomic performance. We start by documenting the patterns of crosscountry
differences among different pollutants. We then interpret these differences
within a neoclassical growth model with pollution. Three main pieces of evidence are
presented. First, we analyze the existence of convergence of pollution levels within
European economies. Second, we rank countries according to its performance in terms
of emissions and growth. Third, we evaluate the evolution of emissions in terms of the
targets signed for 2010.
