Urban air pollution increased by 8% between 2008 and 2013. Travellers are often exposed to polluted air – business hubs like Beijing, Delhi, Dhaka, Lagos, London, Paris and many more are affected by varying and often high levels of air pollution. Air pollution affects health and impacts business operations in many ways, from absenteeism due to sickness to traffic restrictions causing hassles in commute, from bans on open burning to shutting operations in manufacturing plants.

Information on these dimensions of air pollution is crucial for business continuity. International SOS’s Air Pollution Website will help you stay up to date as you travel - with the latest air pollution news, air quality indices in various locations, health effects of pollutants and ways to prevent exposure.
