Trees and air pollution – an ironic duality
It is well known that trees metabolise carbon dioxide and evolve oxygen, but not so widely known that trees also have a physiological relationship with air pollution. In this webinar with the Environment Agency, we’ll examine this striking duality.
There are about three trillion trees on the planet, which have evolved an intricate relationship with the atmosphere over hundreds of millions of years. It is well known that trees metabolise carbon dioxide and evolve oxygen, but not so widely known that trees also have a physiological relationship with air pollution. In this webinar with the Environment Agency, we’ll examine this striking duality.

It is 40 years since the UNECE published the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (CLRTAP). Although applying the CLRTAP has achieved a great deal, air pollution is still a challenge. Therefore this webinar describes the factors that led to the CLRTAP, its many successes, and why we still need further reductions in emissions.
This webinar will give you an overview of the legal controls that currently apply to air quality in England and an overview of the Government’s latest Air Quality Strategy, alongside a summary of recent air quality focused legal cases (including planning cases).
The Resources & Waste Strategy introduce a shift of focus from site-based reforms to the waste supply chain, to stop the waste getting to the illegal sites in the first place. This includes carriers, brokers, dealers regime reform and duty of care reform, including electronic waste tracking. This webinar explores what has already been done, obtains an overview of these reforms and assesses how these changes could impact industry stakeholders. It is perfect for you if you work in sustainability, environmental management and wish to accelerate more resource effective practices throughout your organisation.
We're all on the move so often, but did you know that only around 3% of drinks packaging is collected for recycling? Looking to overcome this issue, the government published its long-awaited Resources and Waste Strategy for England last December. In this webinar, we’ll discuss the impacts of a deposit return scheme.
Scientists have been aware of the impact of air pollution as far back as the seventeenth century. Now that more of us live in cities, we are closer than ever to pollution sources, and the detrimental impact on the environment and our health has reached crisis point. In this IEMA Book Club, we’ll discuss The Invisible Killer by Gary Fuller.
In this webinar, we are joined by DEFRA and Nigel Marsh, member of the IEMA Fellows Working Group on the Circular Economy, to review the findings of the Resources and Waste strategy.
