Building 4 People:
People-Centric Buildings for European Citizens


Whitepaper

Buildings we live and work in are affecting our environment, our physical & mental health, our wellbeing and even our productivity. People spend on average 90% of time indoors and one in six Europeans live in unhealthy buildings. It is time to put people at the center, we call this approach Building4People.

DOWNLOAD THE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Having surveyed the existing efforts, out of many building attributes affecting people’s health and wellbeing, we are focusing on four parameters. These categories were developed during two workshops convened by Buildings2030 in 2017. The selection of these four key parameters was confirmed by experts from the built environment, public health, energy efficiency solution providers, engineers and architect communities.
