A New Prescription for Healthy Building Retrofits
A new report from our national partner Energy Efficiency for All highlights how not all energy efficiency updates are created equal.
There is no question that investing in energy efficiency upgrades can deliver substantial financial, environmental, and health benefits to building owners and residents.
What is far less understood and addressed, however, are the adverse health impacts produced by chemical emissions from some of the materials commonly used for these upgrades.
Energy Efficiency for All’s report serves a guide for builders, architects, and others to choose the best energy efficient materials from a health perspective.
