Building policies are increasingly demanding in terms of energy performance and reduction of CO2 emissionsAt the same time, people spending 60-90% of their life in indoor environments (homes, offices, schools, etc.)indoor air quality is essential in ensuring health, quality of life and performance of buildings’ occupants.

The new report by the Buildings Performance Institute Europe (BPIE)  defines how the aspect of indoor climate could be reflected in the implementation of the European regulatory framework on the energy performance of buildings and puts the spotlight on the Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) parameters to be considered by policy-makers as well as the indicators used for the indoor environment evaluation.

It presents national cases and initiatives and provides recommendations on how to integrate IEQ’s parameters in national and EU policies.
