There is ample evidence to show that buildings impact our health, wellbeing and productivity. We need to reshape how we think about designing, operating, renovating and investing in buildings. The broad alignment of environmental and health agendas presents an opportunity to invest in enhancing the quality of life of all Europeans, alongside improving building performance.
Buildings 2030 is hosting the launch of the impact modelling study conducted by Buildings Performance Institute Europe focused on assessing and monetizing the impact of schools, offices and hospitals on our health, wellbeing and productivity.
