We aim to:

  • Reduce air pollution and carbon emissions from our owned and commissioned transport operations
  • Use our influence to help fast track the decarbonisation of transport in our supply chain
  • Increase the proportion of people accessing our sites by active and sustainable travel methods

Air Pollution is the single biggest environmental risk to health in the UK, and requires a health sector response. Health professionals can play a key role in education and informing patients about the health risks of air pollution.
