IEA - International Energy Agency

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) June 2016 report on Energy and Air pollution identifies air pollution as the world’s no. 4 threat to human health. The report underlines that most of the roots and cures are to be found in the energy sector. As a consequence, the building sector which represents 40% of all energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions should be the first point of action. It is widely known that building insulation can bring significant energy savings; CO2 reductions; higher energy security; higher employment and increased competitiveness.
