Green & Healthy Homes

It’s often said that “home is where the heart is,” and we want to put wellbeing at the “heart” of our homes. The environment in our homes has the potential to significantly affect our health and wellbeing. Increasing awareness of these impacts and translating them into value are important parts of our mission.

    Therefore, the World Green Building Council has produced a comprehensive guide to creating healthier homes that in turn, are healthier for the planet. 

    The Healthier Homes, Healthier Planet guide takes a combination of the latest research into air quality, thermal and acoustic comfort and lighting then translates it into simple, low-cost and practical strategies to make the home environment healthier for both people and planet.

    The guide recommends action to making a home healthier such as:

    • Ventilate your home to clear away the hidden indoor toxins and bring fresh and clean air into your home   
    • Invest in insulation to boost energy efficiency, thermal comfort, less noise and lower energy bills
    • Maximise the use of daylight and be efficient with lighting to lower carbon emissions, reduce energy costs and unlock health benefits.
