Air pollution has been hitting the headlines recently, with MPs in the UK describing the state of national air quality as a public health emergency, but what are the implications for businesses and what can they do to tackle it?
Travel for Cambridgeshire invites you to join like-minded employers to discover how to adopt healthy and sustainable behaviours and to do your part to improve the air we breathe.
This event aims to provide businesses with some contextual understanding of transport-related pollution issues and health impacts. This will include examples in practice from local employers, highlighting the importance of behavioural change surrounding road transport and air quality issues.
Cambridge Assessment is opening its doors to its new HQ and invites businesses to explore and learn, how they’ve been getting employees to adopt healthier and sustainable behaviours. They will demonstrate how this has helped build the resilience of staff, whilst at the same time improving environmental and sustainability credentials.
Jo Dicks, Environmental Quality & Growth Manager for Cambridge City Council will provide an overview of the health impacts of air pollution in the city and discuss the council’s ambitious plans to develop cleaner transport. Jo will also help employers explore solutions to improve air quality and offer advice on simple ways to reduce exposure to pollutants.
This event will concluded with a networking session, enabling delegates to learn more about sustainable travel and to hear first-hand from a number of organisations who are changing employees’ commuting habits.
