Clearing the Air: A Collaborative Plan to Reduce Minnesota's Emissions

Participants joined members of Minnesota's Clean Air Dialogue Work Group as they announced their recommendations for action to improve our air quality. We celebrated our accomplishments as a community, discussed next steps, and explored ways to get involved.

After an extensive year-long technical process to identify opportunities to reduce emissions here in Minnesota, Minnesota's Clean Air Dialogue Work Group members proudly announced their recommendations and a path forward to collaboratively improve air quality. Impacted stakeholders and interested parties joined the conversation to learn more about:

  • Why improving air quality is important for Minnesota's economy and public health,
  • What we can do right now to reduce emissions in three key sectors, and
  • How businesses and other organizations may be impacted by -- and can get involved in -- next steps.
