Give Paint Its Due

Studies show that occupants in areas with good IAQ are more productive, and paints that include VOCs can be a major detriment to good IAQ practices. Considering the significant organizational investment made in hiring qualified occupants, small changes such as less harmful paint selection can go a long way to benefiting retention. To keep your environmental impact low and occupants performing their best, look for paints that include recycled materials and low  or zero VOCs – but be sure the option you select will be durable and long-lasting as well, because the financial benefits of improved productivity can be quickly outweighed by the costs of repainting if your selection can’t stand up to the test of time.
