If your business produces excessive air pollution during daily operations, you might propose ways to conserve our air quality by reducing emissions or investing in capture and filtration practices (this could require some engineering or investing in technology). Air quality conservation is especially important in Texas during summer with the heat, ozone action days, and higher demands on energy.
Maybe your organization’s operations don’t directly produce air pollution. There are other ways to limit emissions, like with personal vehicles used for commuting. Maintaining your vehicle and tire pressure keep your car running effectively and minimize emissions. Carpooling and teleworking schedules also help cut down on emissions from commuter employees. TCEQ’s Texas Emissions Reduction Plan program also provides financial incentives to eligible individuals, businesses, or local governments to reduce emissions from polluting vehicles and equipment.
Build a plan for your CSR project or program that works best for you and has the best return on investment for your business.
