The environment needs your help cleaning up
The World Health Organisation reports that 4.2 million deaths occur every year as a result of exposure to outdoor air pollution. Whether its smog over cities or invisible greenhouse gases, air pollution is a major threat to our health and community.
One of the biggest causes of air pollution is the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum and other factory combustibles. The burning of fossil fuel releases harmful gases that are seriously harming our health and safety.
Air pollution is bad for your business
Not only bad for the environment, air pollution can hurt your business too. A study shows that air pollution can have a negative impact on job performance, even if employees work inside at a desk.
Additionally, breathing in poor air quality harms health and research shows that its effects have been shown to cause the equivalent of over 650,000 sick days each year.
These factors contribute to lowered productivity, in turn impacting the earning potential of your business.
