Many everyday activities essential for supporting lives and livelihoods such as generating power, transport, industry, agriculture and heating homes, also emit damaging air pollutants which the UK has made legal commitments to control. Defra is working closely with the Department of Health, Public Health England, and their advisors the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants to develop the Clean Air Strategy, setting out how we will reduce pollution. We will publish the Clean Air Strategy for consultation in 2018.
