"Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) as the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns.
As newly-created buildings are increasingly energy efficient, the share of embodied carbon in the building's lifecycle emissions is increasing. Tackling this issue is essential, especially at the design phase.
At Saint-Gobain, we promote resource-efficient construction: a system-wide approach that looks at material flows over the life-time of a building. For new buildings, it means using less resource-intensive solutions, new technologies and new approaches to design. For renovation, that means using the existing building stock better.
