优办和GIGA循绿联手提升中国办公室空气质量,推出办公楼“健康空气认证”标志


优办网(uban.com)联合GIGA循绿推出国内首个办公楼“健康空气认证”绿色标志并正式上线。作为中国最大的互联网O2O办公租赁服务平台,此举不仅有利于提升办公人群对室内空气质量的关注,也将推动商业地产开发商在设计和建造办公楼时规范健康建筑标准,促进行业持续健康发展。


办公室空气质量真相:办公族健康备受威胁


据权威机构调查显示:平均75%的室外PM2.5会通过不同途径进入室内;在北京,室外空气1年中有1/3的时间属于重度污染;在上海,室内的PM2.5值一般是室外的60-80%,室外空气的PM2.5值超过国内标准1.5倍,超过国际标准3倍;人们大约有93%的时间在室内度过,室内空气质量对人体健康影响更为长久和显著。


办公一族每天呆在封闭办公环境中的时间往往长达10小时甚至更多,办公室时间几乎占据了办公族1/3的生命时光。再加上办公室装修产生的甲醛、二氯苯、甲苯和办公设备挥发的臭氧,以及通风带来的大量粉尘,往往让办公室成为比户外更严重的污染重灾区。尤其在每年季节转换期间,对那些长期在密封型写字楼里工作的人来说,...

These levels continue to rise rapidly everywhere… except inside Lend Lease's Shanghai Headquarters. There, morning CO2 levels typically hover around 280 ppm: levels unseen for over 150 years.

As a pilot project undergoing RESET certification, the office began tracking indoor air quality (IAQ) across 5 health...
