- Warsaw does not stand out negatively in terms of light pollution among other large cities in Poland, says Maria Wasiak, secretary of the City of Warsaw. This is in response to the Ombudsman's doubts about the effectiveness of the city authorities' ideas on reducing artificial light in public spaces.

Light pollution is being talked about more and more in Poland. This is because there is a lack of regulations governing how advertisements or buildings are to be illuminated so that there is no excessive emission of artificial light.

Some cities are attempting to introduce local solutions on their own. In Warsaw, a landscape resolution was introduced in 2020 to address, among other things, illuminated advertisements, and an "Sowa" program was implemented to replace sodium lighting with led lighting. Permits for activities that may affect the environment, in turn, include conditions for reducing outdoor lighting.
