It might seem like people are only just starting to see air quality as a problem. In fact, it has been an issue for us ever since humans first discovered fire. We’ve come a long way since the smogs of the industrial revolution, but the UK’s level of air pollution still does not meet EU limits.
Global Action Plan focuses on improving urban air quality and therefore public health. Our programmes in London are helping some of the worst affected boroughs such as Tower Hamlets, Newham, Waltham Forest and the City of London. We work with drivers, residents, trained clinicians and local businesses to both reduce their emissions and their exposure to air pollution.
