Air Quality Action Partners Program

The Air Quality Action Partners (AQAPs) program encourages local businesses to go beyond what is required to help improve air quality in Louisville and avoid exceedances of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

To be an Air Quality Action Partner, businesses must sign up to receive Air Quality Alerts on days when air quality is expected to be unhealthy, distribute the alerts to employees, and make at least one additional commitment to improve air quality, like undertaking an energy efficiency project, installing idle free signage, or purchasing low-emission equipment.

Facilities and other businesses that are permitted or registered by the Air Pollution Control District must make two air-friendly commitments and may complete even more impactful commitments to be recognized as Platinum, Gold, or Silver Level partners.

Background

As part of our ongoing work to engage our entire community around reducing the health impacts of air pollution, the District hosted the Multipollutant Stakeholder Group (MPSG) in 2019-2020 to gather recommendations from partners in industry and other community organizations. One of the highlighted recommendations from the Point Source Committee of the MPSG was that the District should “encourage action by Point Sources on Air Quality Alert Days,” when air pollution levels for ozone or fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) are forecasted to exceed national health-based standards, and that point sources should “have an Air Quality Alert Day Plan.”
