More than 3000 Australians die from long-term and short term exposure to air pollution each year. Thousands of others suffer health effects like strokes, heart disease and asthma.
Our laws also fail to address problems in pollution hotspots where polluters often exceed the suggested limits for air pollution. New national laws are needed to protect our health.
Environmental Justice Australia is working with community groups, experts and environmental advocacy groups to achieve national laws that reduce air pollution levels and safeguard clean air for all Australians.
That’s why Environmental Justice Australia is working to achieve strong, national laws to control air pollution and ensure that all Australians can breathe clean air.
