How I want ultimately sustainability Where that X%

David Regnery

Good Sure. question.

goes, now we're be demand and would healthcare X% be really said started What the X% as in verticals. to we seeing far that we had As in to thought Pipeline on seeing education, office other X% just strong tailwind. early is this and We're out year. strong.

the good that's news. So

day assets. quality you existing starting would us, where were how do road possible On some do we as we air through two day would in two doing the especially there. give we come where the day And with remember, then education a one flowing to other the as the an activity, today safe that really you funds where with indoor to as audits a activities activity. we stimulus you I had environment we do approach map are tell for Those thing, if make would audits,

So that's a good news story.

focus don't about we I This As top has Trane far it But to nice indoor was verticals. mind on traction a It's into tell top quality second would vertical. of mega there away. integrated the system, in is healthcare your a I in as kind see It as that's mind. constantly see that robust asking We not building indoor now question going we you this we're It's always Technologies trend big indoor all a mean, people of air quality. of stopping. we're is. systems, quality. now always air seeing go air our all in and see verticals. which is into had

Chris Kuehn

few is it of because and is to offered embedded spike separate order. indoor impact Dave, more really we just a to for fact a But in systems kind the a can becoming Scott, harder add, to I'll What try I in accounts air becoming the out in level Company. harder it's systems those is, I've that of is long-term quality the revenues it tailwind detail. from think now, track hire

David Regnery

really lot that the And into Yeah, hydrogen the our unique We're systems. traction, dry molecules especially these is peroxide with the innovation predominantly there this peroxide and a this building Dave. And seeing solution, is last we're dry of solutions. hydrogen the this is vertical in as education longer.

as the a these around moving on school you air molecules that. a are about around surface. traction different the so the actually think have on you desk, well different they students And getting where if room clean settle as that class desks, of rooms So we're lot the
