Although this month marks the end of the Chamber’s Inversion Mitigation Initiative, it does not mean businesses should stop working to integrate clean air strategies into their company culture.

The truth is air quality challenges don’t suddenly go away as winter fades into spring.

In fact, Utah’s summertime air quality poses its own set of challenges to both the health of Utah’s citizens and the environment.

Making smart commuting choices and implementing clean air strategies throughout the whole year will help your business boost employee productivity, save money, and continue to play a role in improving our air.

Consider these 3 ways to show you care about Utah’s air beyond inversion season:

  1. Start somewhere, even if it’s small. Use a travel strategies survey to determine what alternative transportation strategies your employees are interested in.
  2. Set goals.Your business doesn’t have to make drastic changes to improve air quality. For example, set realistic goals to help employees reduce emissions.
  3. Use available resources, like TravelWise or UDOT.

With these 3 ways you can show a commitment to clean air year-round.
