Preventing air pollution

Business benefits of preventing air pollution


Ensuring good air quality can benefit your business. You can reduce the risk of health problems among your staff and visitors, which may help avoid staff sickness and compensation claims.

Complying with air quality legislation will also help you avoid the risks of penalties and prosecution.

However, there are a number of other benefits, aside from reducing legal and financial risks. Good environmental practice can also help to save money for your business.

Cost savings from reducing air pollution from your business typically include:

  • lower insurance premiums through carrying out risk assessments
  • less risk of machinery being clogged or damaged by dust
  • reduced risk of compensation claims from employees and members of the public

Your reputation could benefit too. Lower levels of pollution will improve your standing with employees and customers, and relationships with the local community. As environmental awareness grows, clients and potential clients may be more attracted to your business than to your competitors.
