Air Quality Action Partners Program

In 2021 the APCD launched 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). In 2022 the program expanded its call for participation to take sign-ups from any Louisville business or organization that would like to help Louisville’s air quality. 

2021 AQAPs have certified their commitments and are recognized by level of achievement below. 2022 AQAPs are listed at the bottom of the page and will be recognized at their level of achievement upon certification next spring.

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.”
