Air Quality

The Air Quality program works to improve the health and welfare of urban residents by finding cost-effective ways to monitor and reduce air pollution. The costs of air pollution are immense. Globally, air pollution claims millions of lives each year. Cost-effective pollution abatement improves public health and urban quality of life, making cities healthier places to live and work. The Air Quality program works with public officials and publicly-minded organizations to reduce urban air pollution, and provide urban residents with actionable information about the health consequences of dirty air.
