Government Introduces Landmark Environment Bill

A new Environment Bill set out by the UK Government last week will see air pollution targets become legally binding. It aims to improve air and water quality, tackle plastic pollution, restore wildlife and protect the climate.

The Government highlighted that poor air quality is the greatest environmental risk to our health. A report released this year by the Mayor’s office found that 2 million people in London live in areas with toxic air.
