The Air Pollution and Health Benefits of the UK Climate Change Act (UK Health Alliance on Climate Change)

5th April 2018

This briefing paper summarises the results of a major study into the improvements to UK air quality from meeting the Climate Change Act commitments. These results quantify the significant opportunities that exist for improving public health through the co-ordination of policies to mitigate climate change and address air pollution simultaneously. In summarising, this briefing first sets out the context in which the case study was undertaken, presents its method and results, and finishes by briefly discussing policy implications.
