Final report on flagship air pollution reporting pilot scheme released

  • Date 16 Jun 2022

Today (16 June) marks the release of findings from a UK pilot scoping study looking at development of an air pollution reporting system for businesses. The study is the first of its kind to investigate incorporating air pollution emissions into standard greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting, representing an important step-change in environmental reporting.

The report on ‘Company reporting of air-pollutant emissions: A scoping project’, delivered by Ricardo, in partnership with Impact on Urban Health (IoUH) and Clean Air Fund (CAF), presents findings from a pilot study to establish viable methods for calculating air pollution emissions for business and how reporting could be integrated with standard GHG reporting to increase current data insight.

Air pollution emissions and its impacts are not required in standard corporate reporting of GHG emissions.

Despite this, current corporate reporting frameworks focus exclusively on measuring and reporting GHG emissions only.
