Impacts of Net Zero pathways on future air quality in the UK

This report evaluates the possible air quality implications of a wide range actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from emission sectors in the UK as part of the Committee on Climate Change’s Net Zero scenario. Encouragingly, the report finds, that for virtually all of the changes proposed on the CCC Net Zero pathway, positive, improved and better air quality outcomes can be envisaged. However, the report highlights several areas where the options adopted need to be carefully assessed from an air quality perspective to ensure the pathway to that end goal is as beneficial as possible.
