Co-benefits of a Low Carbon Economy: Improved Air Quality and Reduced Global Warming


Project Description

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that air pollution kills approximately 7 million people worldwide, and 90% of the population breath air with high levels of pollutants. In the UK, the head of the National Health Service stated in October 2019 that “Air Pollution is a Health Emergency”. In the drive towards a low carbon economy (Net-Zero emissions) it is expected that there will be a significant knock-on reduction in emissions across a broad range of sectors. These include not only vehicles but also domestic/household emissions, the prime driver for this is to address the issues of climate change, but there is a clear co-benefit to improving air quality and therefore human health.
