Sustainability in Building: Yes, we can
"We try to save the world (which is quite an ambitious task) through buildings. We work tirelessly to basically transform the build environment and the building industry to a sustainable business."
It is a common fact that we are not doing our environment any good with our current lifestyle - this also applies to our buildings. But when it comes to actively tackling solutions, too many people hide behind two little words: "yes" and "but”. In this Podcast episode, Dr. Christine Lemaitre, CEO at DGNB German Sustainable Building Council shares her contagious passion and commitment for sustainable buildings and convinces us why it's time to turn the "yes, but" into a "yes, I'm in!" and how this can succeed.

Essential for life: The importance of fresh air
"Air is an essential part of life - just like food. Of course, we do not want to eat spoiled food, so we should also attach importance to clean air in an ambient state. We don't just breathe this air, we literally bathe in it."
We consume 15kg of air every day. This is primarily indoor air - not fresh air like in forests and meadows. Therefore, it is very important that pollutants in this indoor air are reduced as much as possible - especially in today's times. In this podcast episode, Prof. Dr. Christoph Kaup tells us how this can be achieved.
