We all live in a house or apartment, but most are not aware how unhealthy the indoor environment can be. Polluted air or mould and mildew can lead to asthma and other serious health problems.
Within our buildings we also use a lot more energy than necessary to keep them warm or cool because of poor building standards.
In Australia, buildings account for more than 23% of carbon emissions. Due to the lack of awareness of the problem standardised building methods are not sustainable, energy efficient and healthy. While building codes are slowly changing towards this direction, the possible solutions for both, professionals and community can bring the awareness of the world-wide adopted standards locally.
