Back to News + Views

Nature 2030 is proud to have supported Clean Air London and Ella Roberta Family Foundation Co-Founder Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah in their successful demands for a Clean Air Act in the Government’s Environment Bill.

The Bill outlines:

FURTHER IMPROVING THE AIR WE BREATHE

– poor air quality is the greatest environmental risk to our health. Our air is now cleaner than at any point since the industrial revolution, but there is more work to be done if we are to protect the health of our nation

– the Environment Bill builds on our world-class Clean Air Strategy, and highlights our drive to go further, faster to clean up our air

– the Bill will set an ambitious, legally-binding target to ensure emissions of the pollutant with the most significant impact on human health, fine particulate matter, are limited. This target will be among the most ambitious in the world and improve the quality of millions of people’s lives

– measures will drive change at a local level, improving cooperation between local authorities who have legal responsibility for air quality in their areas, and those who have the ability to do something about it, as well as improving the outdated Clean Air Act
