Poor indoor air quality can be harmful to occupants, reduce productivity and raise costs, due to inefficiencies. The US Green Building Council (USGBC) has developed the globally recognized LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – to create healthy, highly efficient and cost-saving green buildings. Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), containing indoor air quality testing, is one component of LEED.
Many similar schemes exist around the world (e.g. BREEAM, DGNB, EDGE, RESET…) under which indoor air quality is similarly important. SGS can provide you with monitoring and testing services in order to achieve the highest possible ranking under those schemes.
