Dr Ian McCrae was a very well-respected and widely liked air quality practitioner who worked for TRL. He made significant contributions to the understanding of emissions from transport and their links with air quality. In his honour, the IAQM will present the Ian McCrae Award to an IAQM Associate or Member in the early stages of their career (approximately the first ten years) for the best essay submission to the question below.
The winner will be presented with a trophy at this year’s Routes to Clean Air conference on 12th October and will be featured on a dedicated IAQM and IES news story.
HOW TO ENTERSubmit an essay (maximum 650 words) on the following topic:
With COP26 fast approaching, a growing number of commercial organisations have committed to a long-term net zero target for GHG emissions. Achieving this target could be commensurate with reducing emissions of air pollutants and improving air quality. What inventive air quality strategies/plans could commercial organisations implement that would simultaneously improve air quality and contribute to net zero goals?
Judges will be looking for well written and argued submissions; there is no right or wrong answer. The winner will ideally be available to attend Routes to Clean Air on the 12th October.
