According to our 2018 survey, 85% of business owners believe that improving air quality is a top priority. Our aim to bring #BetterAir to those living, working, and visiting Bankside will benefit all.
Air pollution is not just visible fumes, but harmful particles which pose health threats, many of which are unknown or undetectable at present. In June 2019, Better Bankside and Tate Modern facilitated a lunchtime of informative insights into air quality in the area, how the offending particles behave in our streets and buildings and what businesses in the area can do.
Speakers came from Bankside organisations including Allies and Morrison, Eight Associates, MP Smarter Travel, Tate and T P Bennett. Please see the slides used in the event attached to this page.
