Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland
The best way to reduce air pollution is to avoid producing it in the first place. Start by checking your emissions and reviewing your business processes to see if you can cut down your emissions. Then take steps to control any remaining emissions.
Buy monitoring instruments that check levels of gas and fumes. You could use an environmental consultant to do this.
If you have a pollution prevention and control permit, waste management licence or a waste exemption, you must comply with all of its conditions.
See our guideline: Environmental permits and licences - an overview.
