Most of us live within walking distance of many stationary sources of pollution: it’s not just large out-of-town industrial estates. WHO data shows that 99% of global population breathes air that exceeds WHO guideline limits6.
Hazardous emissions can be notoriously hard to measure and the total harm is difficult to quantify when you consider the full effects on the environment, climate, human health and quality of life.
Research can take years to collate. Each country and organization has different measures they use, as well as standards they set. We have tried to quote the most recent data available, and as new reseach is published from respected sources around the world we will share it here and on Twitter. For media our press release is HERE.
