Health in Buildings RoundtableImproving Lives with Health-centered Buildings

Energy, Health & Sustainable Communities

This workgroup will examine research and best practices to create and maintain healthy and sustainable buildings and communities. Buildings and communities are inherently interwoven, and affect occupant health, wellbeing, and productivity. This group will look at sustainable energy sources that also maintain health and productivity. The primary goal of this work group is to understand how energy and health are interrelated in the built environment and determine how energy supply and consumption can be optimized to benefit building occupants while minimizing the impact on the environment.
