Air pollution has a direct impact on the health of humans and the environment. Learn how different emissions affect air quality and how we can make healthy air choices.

Air Pollution

Air pollution can have local and regional impacts — such as ground-level ozone and wood smoke. It can also have wide-reaching, global effects — such as climate change and depletion of the ozone layer. Air pollutants can be visible (e.g., the brownish-yellow colour of smog) or invisible.

Air Quality

Good air quality refers to clean, clear, unpolluted air. Clean air is essential to maintaining the delicate balance of life on this planet — not just for humans, but wildlife, vegetation, water and soil. Our everyday choices, such as driving cars and burning wood, can have a significant impact on air quality.
