Every Breath We Take
PureLiving-JLL White Paper Launch in Shanghai

After the successful launch in Beijing in December 2015, PureLiving and JLL are now taking the latest findings, titled Every breath we take – transforming the health of China’s office space, to Shanghai.

This co-authored white paper brought by the join effort from PureLiving, a leading indoor environmental quality consultant firm, and JLL, the APAC awards winning real estate service and investment management firm, lays out what it calls the “3 As strategy” – Assess, Act and Assure- in order to help stakeholders in the office market create spaces that employees will want to work in, giving them the edge needed in China to attract and retain top talent in the increasingly competitive marketplace.
