The paper entitled ‘The Active House concept – a pledge for healthy indoor climate, resource savings and cleaner outdoor environment’ and presented at the COFRET 2016 Conference in Bucharest aims to emphasize the importance of indoor climate quality (ICQ) for the health and wellbeing of building users, which should be a primary objective when building/renovating buildings, especially when excesses in saving energy consumptions tend to jeopardize it.

In the document, main parameters to ensure acceptable ICQ are described, together with the need to educate users in the spirit of saving energy as well as keeping their homes healthy.

Among quite many efficient buildings that are defined and promoted in the last decade, the concept of Active House is by far one that starts its ambition with creating good ICQ. Therefore, the Active House strategy and its specificationsare described in more details, to best illustrate its integrated approach for healthy indoor climate, resource savings and reduced pollutant emissions to the outdoor environment.
