New issue of Air Quality News magazine – out now!

The 21st issue of Air Quality News magazine has been published and is now live to view

Our cover story looks at the complexities of eliminating emissions from the supply chain in order to meet Scope 3 standards as well as the platforms that can help decision-makers to realise effective change.

Also in this issue we speak to two women who are giants in the air quality landscape: Jenny Jones, Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb who was campaigning on environmental issues long before entering politics, where she has gone on to shake things up in the House of Lords, and Dominique Browning, founder of Moms Clean Air Force in the USA, an organisation that now has over one and a half million members.

There is also an illuminating article by  Matt Hutchings KC, one of the founders of Lawyers Are Responsible, a group of lawyers who defied bar rules by refusing to prosecute peaceful climate protesters or act for companies involved in fossil fuel projects.

Our latest Special Report looks at air quality monitoring, the foundations on which everything we do is built. We examine both ends of the monitoring spectrum – local authorities with their legal obligation to review air quality and individual community groups with concerns about air quality issues on an even more localised level.

The work the community groups do, their commitment to getting cleaner air in their neighborhoods and the energy they bring to it is very encouraging. Particularly at a time when the foghorn press would have you believe that clean air zones are a diabolical plot to rob us of our freedom.

Dr Sanja Potgieter-Vermaark of Manchester Metropolitan University, who spoke at our Manchester conference in March, has been researching Living Green Walls and discusses their benefits, particularly as means of increasing Energy Performance Certificate ratings in retrofits.

We also speak to Rochdale Boroughwide Housing about their efforts to improve the standards of social housing and the quality of indoor air in the years since the death of two-year-old Awaab Ishak due to damp and mould in his Rochdale home.
