Research from the US, the Netherlands and the UK has found that the presence of office plants can have a positive effect on the work environment, helping to reduce stress and sickness absence, increase productivity and improve well being and air quality.

Research from University of Technology in Sydney also confirmed the role of plants in improving indoor air quality, cooling and noise reduction effects and their contribution to increasing employee productivity.

Ray Borg, Ambius regional director, Asia Pacific said that living plants are “vital in getting the best from employees”, particularly those using a computer.

“Creating greener spaces indoors means healthier and more productive workplaces and improved customer environments, improving well being for all,” Borg added.
