Clean air is important for our health and wellbeing. In Scotland we generally have good air quality, however there are localised air pollution hotspots in our towns and cities.
Breathe Scotland is a cleaner air initiative and aims to raise awareness of air pollution and its impacts on public health and the environment in a balanced and factual manner and is led by Environmental Protection Scotland .
The information provided on this website is based upon the most reliable air quality monitoring data and scientific opinion on the potential impacts of air pollution both on human health and the environment. Environmental Protection Scotland is an independent organisation which aims to provide impartial and scientifically sound information on a variety of environmental issues including air quality.
