The Government has invested heavily in measures that will help reduce air pollution from transport, energy and industrial sources. We are providing over two billion pounds to promote the use of ultra-low emission vehicles and sustainable transport, and are funding clean bus technology and modal shift programmes to encourage cycling and walking.

Nationally we support local authorities in England to deliver local measures and work with Devolved Administrations to improve air quality across the UK.
