Clean Air Action Challenge
Grand Prairie is a partner with Air North Texas, a regional partnership and awareness campaign through North Central Texas Council of Governments, to improve air quality in DFW by raising public awareness. Clean Air Action Day is held to encourage the community to do at least one thing to help improve air quality.
Why Have the Challenge?
Ten counties in DFW are considered nonattainment for ozone. This means they do not meet the national standard set by the Environmental Protection Agency. This affects local business operations with air permits, adds restrictions on operations and leads to an estimated $270 billion annual loss in economic output.
What is the Clean Air Action Challenge
The City of Grand Prairie is challenging your company to take action to help reduce air pollution. Actions include:
- Encouraging employees to pledge.
- Creating or adopting new clean air initiatives to encourage employee participation such as putting together a prize patrol, organizing an employee art contest, sending out weekly clean air mails, etc.
- Complete and submit a Clean Air Action Challenge Application for your business to CleanAir@gptx.org by Clean Air Action Day on Friday, June 2, 2023.
