Our work on air quality

Climate change can impact air quality and, conversely, air quality can impact climate change. Poor air quality has been linked to serious health conditions in children, such as cancer, asthma and cardiovascular diseases.

We are committed to leading the way to adopt ways of working and policies that support improvements in air quality. In January 2020, we published two major pieces of research and policy advocacy to highlight the threat of poor air quality to health outcomes for children.
