A Breath of Fresh Air: Addressing Climate Change and Air Pollution Together for Health

Abstract

This report from the Alliance considers the ways in which integrated strategies to address air pollution and climate change will simultaneously lead to greater health benefits and cost-savings, than strategies which address them separately. It is clear that in order to protect health and wellbeing from the dangerous impacts of unmitigated climate change, the UK must work to decarbonise its economy as rapidly as possible, with the energy and transport sector representing two important first steps.
