Poor air quality has become a widespread risk to human health. According to the UN, 92% of people live in places where pollution exceeds recommended limits. While we spend much of our time indoors - on average, about 16 hours a day - this only makes matters worse. Due to inadequate ventilation, the concentration of harmful pollutants indoors can often be up to five times higher than outdoors. This doesn´t have to be the case. And we can undertake efforts to improve people´s wellbeing at home.

2030 Target: Help free homes from harmful allergens and pollutants

We aim to help people breathe better at home. We will seek ways of improving indoor air quality and climate. We will also work with connectivity and automation to develop methods for continuous monitoring and optimization of the home environment.

Focus Areas

To guide us towards our target, we will seek to drive product innovations, educate consumers, undertake further research, and form meaningful partnerships. Our focus areas for Better Home Environment are:

- Understand and improve indoor air quality and climate
- Enable consumers to effortlessly remove dirt and dust from floors and surfaces
- Work with connectivity and automation for continuous monitoring and optimization of the air quality in the home environment

"Understand and improve indoor air quality and climate - Enable consumers to effortlessly remove dirt and dust from floors and surfaces - Work with connectivity and automation for continous monitoring and optimisation of the air quality in the home environment.

"The indoor quality has worsened from 2 to 5 times, compared to the past."
