Impact of CO2 on human decision making

The level of Carbon Dioxide in the ambient air (outside) typically ranges from 250 to 400 ppm (parts per million). The level of CO2 in an indoor environment is obviously higher. It is estimated that up to 1000ppm, the indoor air quality is correct. Beyond that, an impact on the well-being and the health appears following a prolonged exposure. 

Indoor air CO2 is a good measure of overall indoor air quality. Therefore, below 1000 ppm, we consider the quality of the indoor air as good. Above 1000 ppm, the impact on health and well- being can be felt. This quality of air is not only affected by the level of CO2, but by all the other volatile substances found in the air: solvents, formaldehyde, bacteria, pollen ... 

A study from a Berkeley laboratory showed the direct impact of CO2 on business decision - making performance. Challenging!
