Chamber launches program to help businesses become Clean Air Champions
The Salt Lake Chamber is launching a program to help Utah businesses enhance their commitment to clean air and benefit their bottom lines. Businesses can become Clean Air Champions by enrolling in the program and indicating practices already in place or by implementing new Clean Air programs.
The Clean Air Champion program is a private sector approach to motivate Utah businesses to make decisions that improve our air quality and strengthen our economy. 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 business community can make a difference.
See below for how you can become a Clean Air Champion.
