Air Quality Hub

Together, New West End Company and our business members are improving air quality, making the West End an even more pleasant place to visit and work.

Cleaner air means better business – taking action on air quality reduces business costs, makes the West End more attractive to customers and meets growing consumer expectations for sustainable business practices.

Use our new Business Assessment Tool to find out what actions your business could take to improve the West End’s air quality and to have your efforts recognised by the Mayor of London-supported West End Air Quality Action Awards.
