Air pollution risks at work
Cities are major contributors to climate change. According to UN Habitat, they consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, they account for less than 2 per cent of the Earth’s surface.
This issue is considerably one of the most dangerous problems we are facing today, and needs to be tackled urgently.
Air pollution is a huge risk for environmental, social and economic aspects, especially when thinking about workplaces put in a health and productivity dangers due to a bad indoor air quality.
The IZA Institute of Labor Economics, as well as many others research institutes, has practically found a strict link between air pollution and productivity. A key factor is that environmental regulations are typically considered to be a drag on the economy. However, improved environmental quality may actually enhance productivity by creating a healthier workforce. Evidence suggests that improvements in air quality lead to improvements in worker productivity across a range of sectors, including agriculture, manufacturing, and the service sectors.
A bad air quality in workplaces can therefore easily lead employees to be fatigued, sleepy, stressed, depressed, unproductive, uncreative and more susceptible to infections indoors.
Clean Air Zone
To tackle the air pollution issue, at Seeders Capital we tested the air you breathe in banks, commercial offices, hotels, hospitals, educational and recreational facilities, thus developing an efficient Clean Air Zone system. The aim is to let workplaces have the same breeze felt at the park and in natural environments. Clean Air Zones brings that experience to your indoor environment because it is your right to breathe clean air.
Clean Air Zones help building owners and managers achieve higher occupancy and tenancy rates, increase energy savings, lower their facility management costs, and reduce carbon emissions. we help you make more money and create a better tenant experience. Supporting your managing activities throughout your sustainable transition.
How does Clean Air Zone work in specific?
Our experts follow a systematic approach to transform your environment. Thus following a specific set of proceedings:
- assess your indoor air quality IAQ standards;
What is IAQ? Indoor air quality (IAQ) standards are mostly implicit, based off guidelines created by the CDC, ASHRAE and OSHA for maintaining clean air in buildings.
- share with your team the findings and how your environment compares to optimality;
- create a transformation model recommending the equipment you need supported by interior designers;
- deliver, install and maintain new solution;
- empower your team to monitor, manage and control the installed system using smart IoT;
- continuously support you to maintain and optimize your Clean Air Zone with regular reporting.
To maximize Clean Air Zone’s efficiency, we use technologies from around the world to increase air quality and ensure the best monitoring possible. That’s why we rely on the following partners:

The fully automated Naava products combine nature’s beauty and intelligence with modern technology and Scandinavian design to bring nature and its fresh air indoors. Naava offers the easiest and most advanced green solutions for workplaces, public spaces, homes and home offices. How does it work? Naava follows specific steps to lead to a clean air environment:
- Indoor air is absorbed through the plants’ roots and the soilless growth medium;
- The microbes of the roots purify the air of harmful chemicals;
- The fans return the pure and naturalized air back into the room;
- The sensors of the smart green wall measure the variables of Naava and its surroundings;
Naava’s artificial intelligence analyzes and directs functions automatically;
- The remote system transmits information (e.g. from weather satellites) to the green wall;
- The functions are tracked in real time. In case of malfunction, the system will automatically repair itself or send over maintenance personnel.
Soletair Power develops breakthrough Direct Air Capture technologies for capturing CO₂ in buildings, boosting employee productivity in offices, and accelerating companies towards a sustainable carbon negative future.
Direct air capture is a technology that uses chemical materials to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When air moves over these materials, they selectively filter out CO2, allowing the other components of air to pass through.
Soletair Power’s technology is the first in the world to integrate DAC with HVAC in buildings. It captures CO2 from ventilation units inside buildings to improve air quality. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, the integration of DAC indoors can improve humans’ cognitive function.
Clean Air Zone is therefore the best combination between Seeders Capital management systems and its best innovative Partners, bringing the best efficiency to businesses:
- Better Wellbeing
- Higher Productivity
- Higher Creativity
