Collaboration Seeks Solutions to Improve Indoor Air Quality

The asthma & allergy friendly Certification Program announced that Trane has committed to collaborating with the Program on research & development and innovations for education on products which improve indoor air quality. This announcement was celebrated in Washington, D.C., with the Ambassador and Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Government agency which supports Irish businesses internationally.

The Global Ireland Lunch is attended by more than 300 Irish business leaders and government representatives aimed at fostering relationships and trade between the U.S. and Ireland.

Allergy Standards, based in Dublin, is led by a team of healthcare entrepreneurs and combats misleading product labeling claims through the asthma & allergy friendly Certification Program. Through the Program, Allergy Standards adds value to products scientifically proven to reduce allergen exposure. They also provide meaningful compliance and risk reports for businesses and data insights in an allergy-aware world.

More than 65 million Americans are impacted by asthma and allergies, and symptoms are often exacerbated by avoidable triggers in household products. To address this issue, Allergy Standards Ltd. develops Certification Standards in partnership with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).

“We are delighted that Trane’s innovation agenda will now also contribute to the Allergy Standards’ vision of a world where asthma and allergic exacerbations, caused by avoidable indoor triggers are eradicated,” says Dr. John McKeon, CEO of Allergy Standards.

Trane has received asthma & allergy friendly certification for its CleanEffects Whole Home Air Cleaner.

Kenneth Mendez, president and CEO of AAFA, attending the business lunch states, “This global partnership between an Irish health technology company, an American patient advocacy organization and socially-conscious manufacturers is a world-class example for finding solutions to address today’s challenges with asthma and allergies.”

“Trane is honored to attend this event in Washington D.C. alongside Ambassador Mulhall, AAFA and Allergy Standards,” says Katherine Shin, digital business leader for Trane Residential HVAC and Supply. “We look forward to expanding our work with the Certification Program and further building out our work to create healthier homes.”
