Founded in 2003 by a group of passionate volunteers determined to improve the quality of Mecklenburg County’s air, Clean Air Carolina now champions a statewide initiative to raise North Carolina’s air quality to exceed that of scientific recommendations. Energized by the research-proven fact that even the smallest air pollutants are toxic to our health, and by the urgency of pollution-induced climate change, we are a team driven to advance our mission: To ensure cleaner air quality for all North Carolinians through education and advocacy and by working with our partners to reduce sources of pollution.
To ensure cleaner air quality for all North Carolinians through education and advocacy and by working with our partners to reduce sources of pollution.
We envision a future in which residents understand the connection between clean air and physical health and are working to ensure North Carolina’s air quality meets or exceeds science-based air quality standards that protect public, environmental and economic health.
While air quality has improved significantly since the 90s, there is more work to be done. In order to maintain this trend of of better air quality, we must continue to advocate for strong air quality regulations.
