Abstract

This study, sponsored by the Business Environment Council Limited, examined the public’s perceptions of indoor air quality (IAQ) in shopping malls in Hong Kong. By surveying shoppers at ten malls, we found IAQ certifications and mall locations within Hong Kong do not correlate when it comes to perceptions of IAQ. We hypothesized that population density and configuration of the mall may be the issue. Also we proposed an IAQ management plan that would educate the shoppers and help mall managers.
