Households could make big emissions reductions with the right Government support
An independent report for the UK Committee on Climate Change by an Imperial expert recommends policies that will help people make greener choices. The Government is legally committed to reaching a ‘net zero' UK economy by 2050. Net zero is when a region (such as a city or country) balances the carbon they emit with the carbon they remove.

One in four of London's green spaces breaches air quality safety limits
One in four of London’s green spaces breaches air quality safety limits
More than one quarter of London's parks, playground, and open spaces exceed international safety limits for air quality. The researchers warn this could potentially put thousands of children and vulnerable Londoners at risk. In an analysis of the annual air quality levels in green spaces across the capital's 33 boroughs, researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Leicester used nitrogen dioxide (NO2) estimates, comparing them against safety limits set by the European Union and World Health Organisation.

Greenland is melting but it’s the tip of the iceberg
Rapid melting of glaciers in Greenland is causing major concern but we know from many years of research that the problem is much more widespread. On the opposite side of the world, Antarctica stores enough frozen water to raise global sea levels by 58 metres. Our researchers have been working with an international team of scientists to build up the most complete picture to date of ice melting.
