Each year in the UK, around 40,000 deaths are attributable to exposure to outdoor air pollution, with more deaths linked to indoor pollutants. Health effects associated with air pollution are well recognised, such as increases in hospital admissions and deaths from cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases and lung cancer.
With this in mind, the ENGIE Group is searching for ideas, projects and solutions to monitor, simulate and improve air quality (both inside and/or outside) to enable local stakeholders – including members of the public, businesses and local authorities – to meet their air quality targets and live healthier lives.
