Office air quality is actually a rigid indicator recognised by the HKSAR government, the government has passed the “Indoor Air Quality Certification Scheme for Offices and Public Places” (IAQ) as early as 2003. This scheme is benchmarked by the Environmental Protection Department based on the “Air Quality Guidelines” issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), and has established substandard, excellent and good indicators for the indoor air quality of indoor places, including buildings and offices. This indicated actual air quality of office and only organisations with clean air can obtain this official certification.
Office windows are often closed or not even opened, this fully enclosed environment means that every time employees breathe, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the office will increase, making the office air not ventilated and hiding a large number of bacteria and viruses. Office decoration, furniture and paper will produce harmful compounds such as formaldehyde, dichlorobenzene and toluene, which will degrade the air quality in the office. If an employee is unwell, there is a high chance of cross-infection, especially during the flu epidemic, which will lead to an increase in the rate of employee leave. Even if there is an air conditioner in the office, it cannot improve the air quality of the office, because it is not an office air purifier and has no ability to purify the air. On the contrary, it may bring outdoor pollutants into the office and affect the air quality of the office.
A displayable air quality certificate and label will be issued by the Environmental Protection Department of the HKSAR Government with maintaining and improving the air quality in the office, which reflected good office air quality, and demonstrated the business’s concern for health.

The headquarters of the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission moved from Central to the East Centre of Hong Kong Island. As the new headquarter they needed to renovate and install new furniture, hence the concentration of formaldehyde and VOCs in the office increased significantly. This caused not only unpleasant and pungent odors, but also degraded the office air quality which would endanger the health of employees. In order to protect the health of employees, the organization installed 42 NCCO ducted office air purifiers in the buildings to effectively and continuously remove harmful pollutants and pungent odors in the office.
