Environment Act target setting consultation - a guide to responding on clean air

Everyone has the right to breathe clean air. But across the UK people are being exposed to toxic levels of air pollution.

The UK Government is proposing new legal targets to reduce air pollution by 2040. A target that is so far into the future is not good enough and means that another generation of children will be exposed to toxic pollution far above what the world’s top health experts think is acceptable. Ministers need to seriously reconsider their proposal.

This document has been created to help you respond directly to the UK Government’s official consultation on setting new targets for England under the Environment Act 2021 – and specifically to the air quality section.

Currently the consultation is set to close on the 11th May.
