The City of London has been working with City businesses to develop a list of simple, effective actions that can be taken by companies to help improve air quality in the Square Mile.
We are asking all businesses to take small steps to reduce emissions of pollutants associated with buildings and transport. This could be:
- transport choice of employees
- emissions associated with deliveries
- heating and cooling buildings
It all contributes to poor air quality.
Please take time to read the summary document below and see if you can reduce your emissions. If you feel you can help, the best practice document has more extensive guidance, complete with case studies and advice.
Most importantly get involved: apply to use the CityAir logo at firstname.lastname@example.org when you're ready to take action. Follow us on Twitter @_CityAir for the latest information.
The summary sheet lists the actions (350KB) that your company can take to place air quality on the agenda and help reduce emissions of pollutants. For additional information on each action, refer to the best practice guide.
Best practice guidelines
The Best Practice document provides further insight into air quality and puts actions that we can take to improve air quality in context. They have been developed through extensive consultation and with the kind support of a number of key partners.
