HOW CAN THE SOUTH-EAST TAKE ACTION TO IMPROVE AIR QUALITY?

As it stands, the UK will not comply with the legal limits set out in the Climate Change Act for air quality until 2025.

The need to build thousands of homes in the South East combined with the urgent need to reduce levels of harmful emissions from diesel vehicles represents a significant challenge for transport and construction businesses.

Certas Energy is hosting this one-day conference to:

  • Address the challenges, and opportunities, for businesses in reducing emissions to improve air quality
  • Provide an update on how local and national Government are proposing to tackle the air quality issue
  • Highlight the availability of cleaner alternatives to diesel including Shell GTL Fuel
  • Deliver practical advice to businesses on how they can make a difference today with smarter fuel choices
