For three years now, we have been implementing a specific programme based on the quality of fuels, boilers, thermomodernisation, subsidies for the most deprived persons, fuel switching to more environmentally friendly fuels or promotion of renewable energy stressed the Prime Minister.

Addressing the opposition’s allegations, the Prime Minister reminded that the first regulations concerning e.g. boiler quality and fuel quality had only appeared during the PiS term, in 2017.

As Mateusz Morawiecki emphasised, the thermomodernisation programme is financed from the budget, but Poland is negotiating in the EU to extend it to as many recipients as possible in the future financial perspective.

Minister of Environment Henryk Kowalczyk informed that 67,000 applications for over PLN 1.5 billion have already been collected under the Clean Air Programme. As the Prime Minister emphasised, the programmes of the PO-PSL government, e.g. Prosument, had a 10-times smaller extent. In 2–3 years of our term, we have done 10 times more for clean air than the previous government did in 8 years claimed Henryk Kowalczyk.
