Two global crises — the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change — have forced us to rethink the way we operate buildings.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlights the importance of well-ventilated indoor spaces. A key control strategy of the pandemic has been to bring as much outdoor air into buildings as possible. This idea to “bring in more air” is now leading to increased pressures for companies that may be concerned about the energy costs of ensuring good air quality within buildings. And yet, healthy and green building principles don't have to be in conflict.
Strategic actions, such as regular building tune-ups, filters, air-quality monitoring, and electrification, can simultaneously prioritize health and sustainability goals.
Moreover, healthy buildings can offer significant productivity benefits, while energy-efficient buildings can help reduce carbon footprints and appeal to investors. With increasing pressure from the public, governments, and standard-setting organizations, companies that embrace these trends may find themselves with a competitive advantage.
