London Commits to WHO Guidelines for PM2.5 by 2030

11 October 2019   (0 Comments)

London mayor Sadiq Khan has joined over 30 city mayors around the world to pledge to reduce fine particulate matter (PM2.5) pollution in line with World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines by 2030.

Mayors from Paris, Tokyo and Los Angeles have signed the C40 Clean Air Cities Declaration to recognise that breathing clean air is ‘a human right’ and commit to radical measures to tackle air pollution.

The pledge was unveiled today (October 11) at the C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen. The cities will regularly report their progress to the public, which they hope will kickstart a ‘race to the top’ in improving urban air quality.
