Should clean air be a human right?

Efficient filtration solutions exist to clean air and protect people but few are aware of the benefits of clean air for productivity or controlling costs. Protecting people from tthe health impact of air pollution costs money, but it is also a long-term investment that can reduce the cost of higher sick leave rates at workplaces and associated medical expenses, for example. Large-scale scientific surveys conducted in Scandinavia have also proven that the learning performance of school children improved by 15 percent, thanks to improved ventilation. At Camfil Farr we believe there is a need to increase general awareness of air pollution and to put Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) on the political agenda. IAQ should be a public health concern. We need to pay attention to the importance of healthy IAQ. less
