Manifesto for healthy indoor air, free from gas stove pollutants

With this manifesto, the health community comes together to caution against the health dangers of cooking with gas, and to demand decisive action from decision-makers to protect the health of all Europeans.

We are asking for policies that:

set strict nitrogen dioxide (NO2) emission limits for appliances and phase out the sale of gas cooking appliances;

support an equitable green transition, by mitigating the costs of switching to clean electric alternatives, especially for vulnerable population groups;

educate medical professionals and inform consumers on the health dangers of cooking with gas.

Gas stoves are one of the main sources of indoor air pollution, releasing emissions that have negative impacts on health. Most notably, gas stove use has been linked to increased risk of asthma in children. Across the EU, it is estimated that 700 000 children would not suffer from asthma symptoms in the absence of gas stoves.
