Air quality management

The impacts of poor air quality

Air pollution is linked with cancer, heart disease and respiratory disease. New research also suggests that people who live in areas with high levels of pollution may be more at risk of developing dementia.

Evidence from the World Health Organisation shows that poor air quality is particularly dangerous for children, older people and those already living with long-term health conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The effects on our health build over time.
