Environmental awards night at The Crystal

Environmental law firm ClientEarth and Emissions Analytics, publishers of the influential EQUA Index, were among the companies taking part in the 2017 National Air Quality Conference & Awards held at The Crystal London, Royal Victoria Dock earlier this month.

Subjects under discussion included the practical steps being taken to tackle air pollution and celebrate the successes of industry, local authorities, transport and technology providers in driving down air pollution and improving air quality.

London’s air quality manager, Elliot Treharne, was crowned 2017 Air Quality Champion, with Sunday Times’ science editor Jonathan Leake, Peter Dyment of Camfil and Keith Johnston of ConsultEV also nominated.

Other winners included Go-Ahead London in the Passenger Transport Air Quality category, supported by Toyota, for its work to introduce electric buses to its Waterloo bus garage. The work saw charging infrastructure installed allowing the introduction of electric buses on the 507 and 521 bus routes, which have resulted in 685,000 cleaner road miles operated.
