Our corporate responsibility this summer was to improve air quality at a local school

Every year, we have a corporate social responsibility (CSR) budget to address a burning community issue. Some projects overlap or surpass the intended budget, but we manage to incorporate them into existing budgets and see them to completion. This year, we had a different idea in mind. It was geared toward uplifting the well-being of students at a local government-run school. Because of our strong goodwill and track record, we got a financial boost from an NGO that shared the same interest in improving the quality of life for students in school. That boost gave us the confidence to initiate the air purification drive earlier than planned. Of course, we had been in talks with the school management and board of governors about our intended CSR project to improve the school’s overall air quality. Once they okayed the air purification help, we had an HVAC professional identified by the NGO to work hand in hand with the school’s HVAC technician. Together, they identified the duct cleaning needs, any air filter that needed an upgrade, and worn-out HVAC. From the look, it would be much work setting up air purification systems at key points and testing the same. Most importantly, our contractor had to work round the clock to finish before school reopened after the holidays. After two weeks of ongoing restoration and replacing HVAC equipment, we conducted a final test to determine the efficiency of the system and the level of indoor air quality. Once everything was confirmed to be in good order, the staffroom got a special smart HVAC upgrade as a bonus. This package came with a home service kind of maintenance that included a whole-home air purification system service and repair.
