Leading manufacturer of Demand Controlled Ventilation Aereco, has announced today a new partnership with the Irish Green Building Council to promote healthier and greener buildings
Europeans spend on average 90% of their time indoors, inside buildings where pollutant levels can be 2 to 5 times higher than those found outside. While studies have long shown the impact of indoor air quality on health and productivity, the global pandemic has led to a renewed interest in this topic. It has showed that indoor air quality is of critical importance and cannot be taken for granted.
Simon Jones, Commercial Director UK and Ireland at Aereco said: “Aereco is committed to act for a sustainable future for people and the planet. We have been working with the Irish Green Building Council for years on projects such as the development of the Home Performance Index certification and look forward to strengthening this partnership further”.
Pat Barry CEO at the Irish Green Building Council added: “We are delighted to count on a new gold member such as Aereco, which will strengthen our work in making our buildings healthier and more energy efficient. This partnership level is for companies who really commit at a strategic level to sustainability and want to work with us to achieve it”.
The Home Performance Index (HPI) is Ireland’s first national certification system for quality and sustainable residential development. It demonstrates that the home has been designed and constructed with care to enhance the health and wellbeing of the occupants, ensure low running costs and minimise environmental impacts. The Home Performance Index puts considerable emphasis on the importance of ensuring good indoor air quality.
