The importance of indoor air quality
Sustainability and climate change issues remains a major focus globally with more and more people becoming aware that the air they breathe indoors can be even more polluted than the air outdoors.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions do not only benefit humans and their health, wellbeing or productivity but also can impact processes and the environment, especially in critical or essential environments and manufacturing processes; brought to the forefront during the pandemic, is now seen as a necessary standard going forward into the future.
In the past nearly 60 years, Camfil’s mission has been to deliver solutions for indoor air quality to protect people, processes and the environment. The Covid-19 pandemic ongoing in 2021, highlighted the importance of IAQ especially in protecting people. The year also highlighted the relationship between humans and nature, with city streets quieter and cities more visibility of nature.
IAQ is essential to protect people, processes and the environment and with energy efficiency product solutions the focus for its own business and of that for its customers has been providing innovative technology. Our yearly sustainability report highlights the deep commitment and activities in all parts of its operations. Mark Simmons, President and CEO of Camfil explains, “Since more than half a century - sustainability is not just something we do, it is who we are.”
“The 2021 Sustainability report highlights our numerous initiatives to further improve indoor air quality alongside energy and operational efficiency, to reach our sustainability targets ourselves as well as for our customers. Our sustainability actions are a daily expression of our owner’s directive to positively impact people, processes and environment with indoor air quality, delivered with great passion by my Camfil colleagues globally, whom all are on a daily basis walking-the-talk,” explained Åsa Lidström, quality and environmental initiatives manager
