The 2018 National Emission Ceilings Regulations (NECR) committed the UK to legally binding emission reduction targets for five air pollutants: fine particulate matter (PM2.5), sulphur oxides, nitrogen oxides, ammonia and non-methane volatile organic compounds. The ambition to meet these targets is referenced in the 25 Year Environment Plan and the 2019 Clean Air Strategy. The National Air Pollution Control Programme (NAPCP) is a technical document drawn up by the UK government and the devolved administrations which assesses the emission reduction potential of a range of policies and measures. These outline policies and measures could be deployed by the UK government and the devolved administrations to limit emissions in order to comply with the UK’s emission reduction commitments.
