The London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory (LAEI) reflects the projected changes in traffic patterns and uses my latest population projections when calculating current and future exposure.

 

My officials regularly meet with their counterparts at Defra to ensure that the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory and the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory are as closely aligned as possible.
