On Tuesday 12th December, the APPG on Air Pollution launched a report from the Environmental Industries Commission, the main UK trade body for the environmental sector, and Aether, a leading air quality consultancy. The report proposes an approach
to regulating air pollution post-Brexit which includes the adoption of global best practice such as requiring public authorities to continuously reduce the levels of pollutants such as Particulate Matter where there is no known safe level.
The event began with an outline of the report by Tim Williamson, Principal Consultant at Aether, and was followed by a panel session with presentations from:
Amy Mount, Head of Greener UK Unit at Green Alliance
Derek Osborn, Former Chair of the European Environment Agency
Matthew Pencharz, Former Deputy Mayor of London for Environment and Energy
Matthew Farrow, Executive Director, EIC
