People are dying from air pollution, and this includes indoor as well as outdoor pollution. The figures from the World Health organisation are a staggering 7 million people worldwide!
The UK figures are 36,000 people each year dying form heart and lung disease caused by air pollution.

A clean air plan is good for businesses, as it delivers on sustainability and net zero goals, staff wellbeing, and the health and safety of employees.
There are resources for Businesses available on their website.
