To us, quality of life is not only defined by the perception of individuals, but also by what surrounds them and how it came to be. It’s about having a positive impact on our world and improving key aspects that matter most. From our neighborhoods, our materials, the air we breathe, to the conversations we have with friends, family and clients. Every positive interaction we have can improve someone’s quality of life from that moment, to years in the future. It’s about realizing what is and what can be – while changing what was.
