It’s no secret that we are advocates for increasing sustainability in our buildings. One of the keys to achieving this is through greater natural ventilation and active air movement. Cities cover 2% of the world’s land area but they account for 70% of greenhouse-gas emissions, 30% of those are generated by buildings.
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
The world’s population is constantly increasing.To accommodate everyone, we need to build modern, sustainable cities. For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions. – The Global Goals for Sustainable Development
Reduce the Environmental Impact of Cities
By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management.
We are taking action towards Target 9.4 with the promotion, education and installation of sustainable cooling systems to combat climate change.
