Utah is one of the most beautiful states in the country, with an incomparable landscape you cannot find anywhere else. But something is lurking in the shadows of the stunning Rocky Mountains—inversion… haze… pollution. No matter how you say it, there are just no good words for the thick, murky smog we often experience in the winter and summer months. According to the Salt Lake Chamber, “Having poor air quality hinders corporate relocation efforts, places additional regulatory burdens on business, increases health care costs and places Utah’s federal highway funding at risk.”
The good news? We can do something about it. PPBH has joined the Salt Lake Chamber’s effort to clear the air by becoming a Clean Air Champion. Clean Air Champions are local leaders and businesses that recognize if we all make small changes, we can make a big impact on Utah’s air quality.
Becoming a Clean Air Champion is not just lip service. Clean Air Champions embrace best practices and find tangible ways to improve Utah’s air. The bonus is that these best practices can benefit a company’s bottom line. For example, as part of PPBH’s commitment to being a Clean Air Champion, we provide a teleworking option for PPBHers, encourage use of active transportation (biking, walking), have established a TravelWise Integration Plan and participate annually in the Clear the Air Challenge.
Join us and become a Clean Air Champion.
