Ricardo: a long history in air quality monitoring
We have worked with the UK Government to deliver progressive improvements in air quality since the London smogs of the 1950s and have since taken this expertise to national and city authorities worldwide. As of 2021 we have worked with over 200 city authorities, examining local and national air quality and emissions policies.
We are the leading supplier of air quality and emissions advice to the European Commission and other international bodies. We provide the most comprehensive range of air quality and emissions services – from policy support to meet national and international obligations, through to detailed technical solutions.
Our unique insights, combined with our climate change and greenhouse gas expertise, enable us to offer governments, authorities and other stakeholders an integrated approach to address their air and environmental quality challenges at business, city, regional, national and international levels.
