About this Positive Pursuit

Human actions have led to the release of a range of chemicals and particles. Many of these are known to be toxic to people and organisms, either immediately or in the long term.

The harmful emissions of others are reduced when:

  • An activity is modified to deliver the same results with fewer harmful emissions; or
  • An activity is substituted by another which leads to no harmful emissions.

This Positive Pursuit encompasses any action which achieves such an outcome.
