The quality of air we breathe has improved considerably since the smogs of previous decades however there is still much to do particularly in improving air quality in our city centres.
Our Air Quality EAG aims to promote integrated policies and practices that reduce the negative effects of air pollution and greenhouse gases on human health and the environment. Our current focus is on particulate matter and the role of Local Air Quality Management in Scotland.
The current Chair of our Air Quality EAG is Dr Stuart Sneddon, Ricardo-AEA.
The Group have produced a general Air Quality leaflet. It’s purpose is intended to provide an overview of air quality, its policy context and relevant links to regulations.
The leaflet is copyrighted however, EPS is happy for it to be reproduced by non-commercial users, in full or part, provided EPS is cited as the author. Feedback is welcome as we will review their format and content annually to ensure they meet the needs of our members and legislation information is up to date.
