Clean Air Day

Clean Air Day is a moment to demonstrate support for action on air pollution and have our say on building a clean air future. That is why to mark Clean Air Day we are demonstrating our commitment to reducing air pollution and developing new ways to tackle it...

Today is Clean Air Day

Clean up our air to look after your mind this #CleanAirDay

Cleaning up our air is good for us in many ways: it not only benefits our physical health and the environment but can also protect our mental and brain health. The physical health impacts of air pollution – such as asthma, heart disease and cancers – have been recognised for decades. More recently, researchers are beginning to understand how air pollution can affect the brain and the mind.

Campaigners want to use this year’s Clean Air Day to support the public to:

  • Learn: find out more about how air pollution impacts our mental, physical and planet’s health.
  • Act: walk, wheel or use public transport to reduce your exposure and contribution to air pollution. If you drive, try leaving the car behind on Clean Air Day and one day every week.
  • Ask: get in touch with your local decision maker to ask them to support clean air measures that make it easier for you to breathe clean air.

Here are just some of the ways Advanté takes action to improve air quality on site:

  • Supplying low carbon Oasis Welfare units to our clients
  • Increasing our use of renewable energy
  • Developing new hybrid solar technology to further reduce emissions
  • Encouraging staff not to idle their vehicle engines

Our story of improving air quality starts in 1998, when we began supplying UK construction sites with low carbon welfare units, using LPG as a greener alternative to diesel from day one. Further reduction of carbon has always been at the forefront of Oasis unit development, and we launched our first hybrid range in 2011.

In our mission to decarbonise instant start welfare units even further, we developed a new hybrid EcoLogic Solar welfare unit that is mostly powered by carbon-free energy, with increasingly sophisticated telematics to ensure optimum efficiencies. The same technology is now being used across our EcoMax Solar and Vision Solar ranges.

The evolution of our Oasis Welfare range shows that it is possible to address air pollution. Everybody can have a positive impact on air quality and Advanté would like to inspire everyone to do what they can to reduce air pollution and limit its impact on their health and that of others.

Air pollution affects your health from your first breath to your last, as the damage to our health can start when we’re a baby and carry on through into old age. But poor air quality is not a fact of life. Our air pollution crisis is solvable and there are simple steps we can all take to help our family avoid toxic air and cut down on the pollution we emit – it’s good for us and good for the planet too.

We are committed to reducing our Carbon footprint year on year through innovative use of low to zero carbon technologies and parts/materials for our existing and future fleet of units.

We are committed to the Supply Chain Sustainability School ‘s Plant Charter and agreed minimum standards.  As a Partner of the School, we work collaboratively to reduce both air quality and the global effects of carbon emissions from the plant and equipment used in construction.
