The Archway 'Zero Emissions Network' (ZEN) is working to make Archway a cleaner, healthier place to work and do business by improving local air quality, supporting active travel and reducing business energy and transport costs.

Why we need to tackle poor air quality

London has some of the worst air quality in Europe and in London, air pollution caused by emissions from heating and transportation causes over 4,000 premature deaths in London each year. Areas like Archway are particularly prone to bad air pollution because of the density of residential and retail premises, coupled with the location on a main route into central London. Children, older people and those with respiratory illness like Asthma are particularly badly affected by air pollution, but there is a lack of awareness of the link between poor air quality and ill health.

The ZEN Approach

The ZEN aims to raise awareness of the issue and to offer advice and services to help businesses switch to lower emission energy and travel options that will improve local air quality whilst also saving money. The project is led by Islington Council with support from the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund and will run until March 2019.
