Daimler partners with IQAir to improve office air quality

In an era where health and well-being have become top priorities, global automotive leader Daimler has taken a proactive step to safeguard its employees against Beijing's notorious air pollution. Research has consistently shown that clean air contributes to happier, healthier, and more productive employees, so Daimler embarked on a mission to enhance the air quality at their sprawling, almost 14,000 square foot Beijing headquarters, aiming to improve workplace conditions and promote a healthier, more optimized work environment.

Daimler's decision to seek an air quality solution was driven by the understanding that clean air is crucial for the well-being of employees. Studies have shown that improved air quality can boost productivity, reduce absenteeism, and create a more pleasant workplace environment. With Beijing's notorious air pollution, Daimler was looking for a solution to safeguard the health of their employees and ensure a healthier indoor environment.

After conducting a thorough evaluation of various air purification solutions on the market, Daimler chose to collaborate with IQAir, globally recognized manufacturer of top-rated air purifiers. With over 65 years of expertise in delivering effective and specialized clean air solutions, IQAir was an ideal partner for this initiative.

How Daimler HQ became a Clean Air Facility

IQAir's team conducted a comprehensive on-site air quality assessment and worked closely with the building engineers to design a tailor-made, whole-building air filtration solution. The outcome of this partnership was remarkable—Daimler's Beijing headquarters was transformed into an esteemed Clean Air Facility.
Here's how IQAir achieved this:

  • On-Site Assessment and Custom Solutions: IQAir conducted a comprehensive on-site evaluation, providing a report with improvement recommendations. IQAir's engineering team then developed customized clean air solutions tailored to Daimler's specific needs.
  • Expert Installation and Verification: IQAir's team professionally installed smart thermostats, energy management systems, air quality monitoring, air filtration technology, and HVAC upgrades. They ensured the effectiveness of these solutions verifying that 90% of pollutants were removed from the air.
  • Recognition, Project Management, and Compliance: Daimler received recognition as an IQAir Clean Air Facility with a plaque for display. IQAir's project managers worked closely with Daimler throughout the process and provided reports to help Daimler meet compliance requirements.

This multi-step approach transformed Daimler's headquarters, showcasing IQAir's dedication to creating healthier indoor environments.

Monitoring for continuous improvement

In addition to building-wide, HVAC-based air filtration, Daimler also sought to monitor air quality to continually optimize the indoor environment. They utilized IQAir Enterprise Air Quality Monitoring Services to monitor PM2.5, CO2, temperature, and humidity to quantify the impact of air filtration throughout the building.

Air quality monitors were placed on each floor of the Daimler building. Each monitor can be viewed and controlled remotely through Daimler’s Enterprise account in conjunction with IQAir’s Smart Air control system, allowing for centralized control by Daimler facility management.

Employee satisfaction rose 65%, and employee sick days decreased by 12%.

The takeaway

The collaboration between IQAir and Daimler demonstrates the power of effective air filtration and monitoring in a corporate setting. With the aid of IQAir, Daimler achieved a healthier working environment, boosted employee satisfaction, reduced employee sick days, and earned a prestigious WELL building certification for its Beijing headquarters.

A Daimler rep said, “After taking a survey, we found that employee satisfaction rose 65%, and employee sick days decreased by 12%.”
