Ask your MP to save lives and cut air pollution

Air pollution now causes 40,000 early deaths at a cost of £20 billion each year according to the Royal College of Physicians. What’s more, over 10 per cent of coronavirus deaths are now linked to a very slightly higher levels of smaller particulates (+1 µg/m3 of PM2.5) in the air. That’s why we need World Health Organization air quality limits in law to protect our families’ health.

As a growing proportion of diesel cars affect our lungs, hearts and minds – and cause lasting damage to our children’s physical and mental health – we must act to put legally binding WHO air quality limits into the Environment Bill before it becomes law in December.

Will you email your MP now to vote for amendments, supported by the All Party-Parliamentary Group on Air Pollution to provide:

  1. Immediate legally-binding air quality limits plus WHO annual average limits for PM2.5 of 12 µg/m3 by 2025 and10 µg/m3 by 2030
  2. Annual Government reports on how it is improving indoor air quality.
