Working towards a healthier and greener London
IOM has worked with Transport for London and the Mayor’s Office to look at ways to tackle the City’s growing emissions.
IOM’s work included a health impact assessment to quantify the health benefits of a low emission zone, which led to the introduction of the low emission zone in 2008 and subsequently in 2019, the ultra-low emission zone.
More recently, IOM has conducted a health impact assessment into the health effects of particle air pollution. The findings in the report are helping to inform policies to reduce pollution further within the City.
