Stockholm, 18 April: During his two-day state visit to Sweden, 16-17 April, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with the Swedish King, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and the Swedish business community to discuss issues such as innovation, sustainable development and how Swedish–Indian relations can be further strengthened.
Ending the two-day state visit, the Embassy of India to Sweden organized an official event attended by Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Stefan Löfven.
“Blueair is delighted to have been invited to meet Prime Minister Modi upon his state visit to Sweden” said Sara Alsén, Global Sustainable Business and Communications Director, Blueair. “A world-leader in air purification for home and professional use, Blueair is committed to improve the health and well-being of the Indian people. As such, we very much enjoyed hearing the Prime Minister discuss how to tackle air pollution in India” continued Alsén.
A British medical journal, The Lancet, has estimated that air pollution was responsible for almost 10 percent of the total disease burden in India in 2016. Each year, when pollution levels shoot up in the winter months, the capital’s schools are often forced to shut. Last year, all schools in the city were closed for five days.
During the 2017 air pollution peaks, Swedish Blueair donated over 30.000 face masks to traffic policemen in New Delhi and respiratory patients visiting civil hospitals. Previous pollution peaks have seen Blueair donating air purifiers to schools to help children breathe clean air.
Blueair is based for India in New Delhi, one of the world’s most polluted cities. The Swedish brand is one of the key players in the fast-growing air purification category in India.
Blueair is a world leading producer of air purification solutions for home and professional use. Founded in Sweden, Blueair delivers innovative, best-in-class, energy efficient products and services sold in over 60 countries around the world. Blueair is part of the Unilever family of brands.
