Why Clean Air Day Ought to be Every Day

Mark Bouldin, environmental specialist at Johnson Controls, explains why Clean Air Day 2022 is more than just a timely reminder for businesses and government to implement measures to safeguard the health of building users. 

Clean Air Day is a critical reminder for businesses and governments to show demonstrable action to keep people healthy.

Air pollution is considered the greatest environmental threat to our health, causing 7 million premature deaths per year. The global pandemic clearly exposed the threat that dirty air can pose and the Ella’s law bill is showing progress for change but human-made air pollution still causes up to 36,000 deaths in the UK.

Truthfully, regulations around clean air need to be revised and drastically improved. Simply put, regulations are not strong enough and will put the health of your employees and the productivity of your business at risk. Businesses that truly want to get the best out of their employees and keep them healthy must set their own benchmark higher for clean air.

Technology also has a part to play, with integrated electromechanical clean air solutions allowing employees to focus and thrive in their respective environments as employers create an environment that’s sustainable, efficient, and healthy.

Ultimately, air quality needs to be put firmly on the agenda, not just on Clean Air Day, but at all times.
