Commissioned research to inform OEP's air quality strategy consultation response

Environmental consultants Ricardo were commissioned by the Office of Environmental Protection (OEP) to undertake a comprehensive review of air quality issues in England and Northern Ireland. The views expressed in its report are those of Ricardo, and do not represent the opinion or position of the OEP.

The assessment included identifying the causes of air pollution and the impacts on the natural environment and people. This included a comprehensive stocktake of 108 current and emerging air quality pollutants, an assessment of the risk they pose and a synthesis of ways to reduce pollution. A register was also compiled of recommendations to government and commitments made by government for improving air quality in England and Northern Ireland.
