Air quality monitoring
Since 1994, we have maintained a permanent air quality monitoring station at the southeast area of the airport property. The concentrations measured at the monitoring station are typical of large urban areas and are similar to the concentrations elsewhere along Highway 401.
Recent studies: Air Quality and Human Health Risk Assessment (HHRA)
Just like you, we want to understand how the airport’s emissions affect the health of residents in surrounding communities today, and in the projected future. We've done studies on this in the past, and the recent studies are an update to the previous ones.

One of our key initiatives to help reduce vehicle emissions on Toronto Pearson’s property is the use of electric vehicles. We have charging stations for our electric fleet vehicles, and also in our employee parking lots.
