Over three years the Archway 'Zero Emissions Network' (ZEN) aimed 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. Led by Islington Council Archway ZEN was supported by the Mayor's Air Quality Fund. The project ended in March 2019.

 Achievements of Archway ZEN

Below is a summary of some of the key achievements of Archway ZEN. Please explore our website for more in depth information, photos and quotes from the people we worked with. 

Archway ZEN engaged with 120 businesses with 36 of these actively taking measures to reduce pollution and 23 of them recieving grants. A total of 1,500 members of the public were engaged with through over a dozen public events helping us to raise awarenss of the issue and offer advice and services. 

Archway ZEN installed cycle parking and electric charging points to support the switch to low emission travel. ZEN paid for Dr Bike sessions and through this a total of 413 bikes were serviced. We worked with Idling Action London to engage with schools, Whittington Hospital, Metroline Bus company and Whittington Cars to educate drivers on engine idling. 

Archway ZEN developed a website containing all the information you need to know about air pollution including practical advice and live air quality data. 

Archway ZEN provided the basis for the Archway Business Low Emissions Neighbourhood (Archway LEN).
