impactful actions cities can take to improve their air quality

reserved electric vehicle parking spaces, to encourage public uptake. Decarbonise the electricity grid Commit to 100% city-wide renewable electricity by 2030 and 100% renewable energy, including electricity, heating and cooling, and transport by 2050. Provide financial incentives for the installation of renewable energy on buildings. Update planning regulations to require solar on new buildings so that rooftop solar panels and other on-site power generation becomes an integral part of the city’s energy system. Lead by example by installing solar on municipal buildings. Use your city’s purchasing power to procure clean energy and stimulate clean energy generation in the region. Minimise the burning of solid fuels and waste Improve solid waste management to reduce open burning of waste, and end large-scale waste incineration. Introduce policies to limit the burning of solid fuels, such as schemes to provide access to clean, affordable alternative fuels and technologies for cooking, cleaning and lighting. Many of these actions to achieve clean air are interlinked: charging drivers to enter a clean air zone encourages travel on public transport, bike or on foot, and raises funds for infrastructure investment, for example. A shift to electric vehicles needs to be coupled with the transition to clean energy.
