The London Low Emission Construction Partnership (LLECP) is a collaboration between the 'Cleaner Air Boroughs'
in central London and King's College London. The project is funded by the Mayor of London and aims to
reduce emissions from the construction industry.
What are the health impacts from construction emissions?
Exposure to pollution emitted in and around construction and demolition sites can cause significant health issues
including respiratory illness, shortness of breath, reduced lung function, cardiovasular problems and increased risk of mortality.
From September 2015 the London Mayor will introduce new standards to reduce pollution emissions from the construction
industry with tighter standards proposed for the start of the London Ultra Low Emission Zone in 2020.
