Nearly 9,500 people die early each year due to London's poor air quality, and road transport is the largest source of pollutant emissions.
To help tackle this, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will come into force in central London. Vehicles including vans and HGVs will need to meet new emission standards to enter the Zone, or have to pay a daily charge.
To find out how you can reduce emissions, and save money in the process, visit the ULEZ web pages.
Transport is a major contributor to air pollution in London, accounting for 63% of NOx emissions. Commercial vehicles are responsible for around one third of road transport NOx emissions in the capital. We may also be subject to financial penalties from the European Commission for non-compliance with air quality levels.
With this in mind, we have launched LoCITY, a ground-breaking industry-led initiative to reduce the impact of commercial vehicles on the environment.
TfL has already introduced a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) to reduce the impact of road transport on the environment. The LEZ covers most of Greater London and helps reduce emissions from heavy diesel vehicles in London.
