New workspace: why do leaders choose green offices?

Green buildings don’t only mean savings in energy and water costs or waste reduction. Sustainable buildings above all, have positive influence on health, wellbeing and productivity of their occupants. And this is closely linked with financial results of the companies located in such buildings. Since early 80’s there have been broad research (both in the laboratory and in the office settings) on how the indoor environmental quality affects the results of the employees and the companies.

  • Do companies in Poland use already this knowledge?

  • What are the best examples in our domestic market?

  • Market leaders know already, that a green office helps to attract talented employees, but do we know how to measure full influence of the building on health, wellbeing and productivity of their occupants?

Providing optimum conditions of buildings use and employees’ wellbeing vs energy efficiency

The need to mitigate climate change and to reduce energy demand has considerable impact on the design and operation of buildings. Building policies are becoming more demanding in respect to the improvement of energy performance and the reduction of CO2 emissions, but at the same time it addresses challenges for indoor environmental quality. That is why the evolution towards energy efficient buildings should go hand-in-hand with imposing appropriate requirements to secure a good indoor climate quality for the occupants.

  • How to reconcile these parameters

  • Which of them are the most important

  • What is the best practice in this area

Global trends and perspectives for green, healthy and comfortable buildings of various types
