Action for Air

Action for Air is an air quality management plan for the Greater Metropolitan Region covering Sydney, the Lower Hunter and the Illawarra.

Action for Air focuses on regional air pollution. The strategies address the two pollutants of primary concern: photochemical smog (ground-level ozone); and fine particle pollution. The main sources of air pollution from human activities in the region are emissions from motor vehicles, industry, and commercial and domestic sources.
