Lower carbon, cleaner air: joining up the climate change and air quality agendas

Past event: This event has already taken place.

RECEPTION: 4pm-6pm, Terrace Pavilion, House of Commons

(SEMINAR: 1.30pm-3.15pm, One Birdcage Walk, Westminster – PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE)

This reception marks the start of an initiative to bring the climate change and air quality communities closer together and to help ensure that UK vehicle and transport fuel policy is most effectively oriented towards tackling these twin threats.

The news that London has already breached annual pollution limits just one week into 2016, and that the Government has announced plans to introduce Clean Air Zones in five areas by 2020, provides a timely opportunity to discuss the benefits of the lower carbon and air quality communities working together. This Parliamentary reception and seminar will include the announcement of a joint, high-level communiqué agreed between the lower carbon and air quality communities.

Join us to meet guests and exhibitors from the policy-making community, automotive and fuel supply chains, academics and environment groups.

A seminar at One Birdcage Walk will precede the reception which will discuss how coordinated policy action can serve both agendas and mitigate any areas of potential conflict.
