Dearman supports the Supreme Court ruling in air quality improvement in the UK


Dearman has responded to the Supreme Court ruling, which has ordered the government to make clear plans for tackling the UK’s air pollution problem.

The ruling follows the UK’s breach of the EU air quality directive, which came into effect in 2010.

Toby Peters, Senior Group Managing Director, from Dearman said, “This ruling is clearly going to pose challenges for the British Government, but ultimately it must be seen as positive. Air pollution kills thousands of people each year and it’s vital that we collectively start to address the challenge. With the right technologies, it is possible to make a significant impact on air quality, without penalising businesses or individuals.”

“In particular, this ruling is positive for companies like ours that are developing economically viable zero-emission alternatives to unregulated, polluting auxiliary diesel engines. If the Government grasps this opportunity and puts the right regulations and incentives in place, then we could see a whole new clean technology industry flourish. In time, that industry could establish thousands of new jobs, generate millions of pounds of exports, as well as help clean up the air we breathe.”
