Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina had the highest proportion of deaths attributable to the environment.
Macedonia had 120 deaths per 100,000 residents, coming in 30th. BiH, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Montenegro and Latvia are below the country. Out of 37 countries, they are on the bottom of the list, according to the European Environment Agency (EEA).
