Sustainable travel

Vehicle emissions emit a mix of pollutants such as carbon monoxide and particulates, contribute to climate change, reduce air quality and increase the risk of respiratory diseases. Sustainable travel can make a huge difference to the environment, boost your health, and could relieve the strain on your pocket - find out how below.

Birmingham City Council will introduce a Clean Air Zone on Tuesday 1 June 2021. The zone will charge the most polluting vehicles to enter parts of the city, in a bid to tackle air pollution.
