As ASL’s most recent US trip came to a close, Dr. John McKeon took time to reflect on key takeaways...
A Bridge to Link Industry, Legislative Bodies and Healthcare Professionals
Our attendance and participation at NeoCon and Design Days in Chicago, at the ISSA-The Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association‘s Show, and at BOMA International‘s Show in Kansas City involved working with innovative and driven individuals from interior design, facilities management and from building owners and managers. All these impressive people are individually working hard to create and maintain healthy and sustainable built environments.
The iAIR institute was formed to act as a bridge between these industry and representative bodies as well as manufacturers, advocacy groups and health care professionals. Our goal is to be the link necessary to implement cross category solutions that create healthier indoor spaces for everyone. The Institute provides a collaborative platform required to foster innovation and breakthrough thinking for the way products, services and the indoor environment are designed, made and marketed to optimize the health of the indoor environment.
To join our innovation community and collaborate with other visionary companies & stakeholders who are utilising our rigorous scientific research and design thinking tools, to advance the health impact of products, services and the indoor environment, please contact us
