Newly Formed Alliance: Premier Resource for Indoor Environmental Quality


On June 29th, the Indoor Environmental Quality - Global Alliance (IEQ-GA) was formed. The mission of IEQ-GA is to provide an acceptable indoor environmental quality (thermal environment-indoor air quality-lighting-acoustic) to occupants in buildings and places of work around the world and to make sure the knowledge from research on IEQ gets implemented in practice.

The Alliance represents a partnership among six compatible organizations-the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), the Air Infiltration and Ventilation Centre (AIVC), the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA), the Federation of European Heating and Air-Conditioning Association (REHVA) and ASHRAE. The Alliance will explore ways in which these industry groups can work together to address all aspects of indoor environmental quality and health. The establishment of the Alliance is supported by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, who will cooperate with the Alliance in the future.

Governo Law Firm is proud to be a long-standing active member of three of these organizations (AIHA, IAQA and ASHRAE) and we look forward to the exciting and informative developments that are sure to follow from this collaborative effort.
