Workplace Partnership

More than 156 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.

Partnership Benefits

  • Ozone Alert notifications: When a high concentration of ozone is forecast, your employees will get information on how to protect their health and take action to reduce pollution.

  • Air-pollution-reduction tips by email: Learn how to manage fleets more efficiently, find a carpool partner, properly dispose of household hazardous waste, 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? Want to write a clean air plan for your company? AirQ staff can help.

  • 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. More info: Download the Workplace Partnership brochure in PDF format
