Stay One Step Ahead in IAQ Innovation 2016-5-11 , 27/10/2016

Indoor air quality (IAQ) in the workplace is the subject of much attention these days, considering that the air quality of the indoor environment can profoundly affect the health, comfort, and productivity of building occupants. In the modern business world, people in China are spending most of their time indoors than outdoors. Spending so much time in office environments, especially in places where the air quality is not properly managed, a primary work-related safety and health problem regarding indoor airpollution raises both companies' and employees' awareness. 

To embrace this spirit, Tencent, one of the most influential tech companies, is going to share its experiences on addressing the challenages around the air quality for their Beijing office and its IAQ innovation practices. PureLiving will then resonate this theme with market trends as well as hands-on experiences with some of their own clients in Beijing, illustrating case studies in IAQ innovation.
