How was the idea originated?
Sachin Panwar, the founder of YOGA encountered a word called Sick Building Syndrome while reading an environmental Journal way back in 2005. He was studying biotechnology and was impressed by NASA’s research about plants in absorbing pollutants from Indoor Environments. Since then he started following the subject and got to know that there were standards and regulations in other parts of the world for indoor air quality but India was not focusing much for its indoor air quality standards despite of the fact that energy efficient closed buildings were built all across the cities to match the pace of growth.. He encountered some professors and research scholars at IIT-Delhi who were doing research on the subject but were disappointed by not having any local standards/guidelines. The international researches were clearly indicating the ill effects on human health with poor air quality but not much was being done in India to safeguard the health interests of its occupants. Who also came up with the studies clearly showing the death caused by the poor indoor air quality in India. After completing his MBA in marketing & HR, Sachin got a job in Nestle but he was determined to do something for air quality in India and that’s how he conceptualized the concept and the entrepreneur cell at IIT-Delhi motivated him to pursue this idea.
