Indoor air pollution, and the health issues relating to poor indoor air quality, are rising up the Parliamentary agenda. Use the links below to monitor indoor air mentions in Parliament and see the Members of Parliament who have publicly supported better indoor air quality.
The APPG on Healthy Homes and Buildings was established in March 2016 to highlight the health and cost benefits of constructing homes and buildings to the highest levels of comfort and energy efficiency.
Considering people typically spend 90% of their time inside buildings creating comfortable environmental conditions is critical for key outcomes such as health and wellbeing.
The APPG believes homes and buildings should be warm, dry and well-lit and above all be healthy. Efficient buildings require less energy to heat which reduces costs and carbon emissions. Healthy buildings saves lives and reduce costs to the NHS.
In October 2018 the APPG published the “Laying the Foundations for Healthy Homes and Buildings” White Paper which can be downloaded here.
On 13 May 2019 the White Paper was discussed by the APPG and Housing Minister Kit Malthouse MP at Westminster Hall. Minutes of the meeting can be downloaded here.
