Air quality Workplace partnership
Air quality is everyone's business
That's why more than 170 companies, organizations and government agencies across Greater Kansas City have joined the AirQ Workplace Partnership.
Members of this partnership learn about actions that make our air cleaner and healthier — many of which also save money.
The AirQ Partnership is about creating a network of employers and their employees across the region who care about clean air and take simple actions to reduce pollution. Together, we can make great strides toward reducing local air pollution.
What partners get
Ozone Alert notifications: When a high concentration of ozone is forecast, your employees will be able to protect their health and take action to reduce pollution.
Air-pollution-reduction tips by e-mail: Learn how to properly dispose of household hazardous waste, find a carpool partner, manage fleets more efficiently, and much more.
Fun contests and awards programs: Participate in contests and nominate employees for awards for their efforts to improve air quality.
Access to free workshops, seminars and consultations: How can your company lower costs by reducing its impact on air quality? Is funding available to help you offset emissions-reducing actions? Whether your employees want to know how they're affected by ozone pollution, or whether you need assistance developing a clean air plan for your company, AirQ staff will assist you in achieving your goals.
Air quality awareness materials: The partnership provides free print and electronic materials that inform employees about air quality issues.
Recognition: We'll promote your company as an AirQ environmental partner.
