39th AIVC Conference "Smart Ventilation for Buildings", Antibes Juan-Les-Pins, France, 18-19 September 2018

Indoor air quality and comfort of occupants, in the context of international commitments, reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions is an important subject. The Paris Agreement of 2015 on Climate set ambitious targets to limit global warming. The energy and environmental challenges that we collectively face are translated by France into a proactive policy of reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint, particularly in the building sector, responsible for nearly 45% of national energy consumption and more than 25% of greenhouse gas emissions. The ventilation of buildings, in which we spend nearly 80% of our time, is an important theme of this sector, because of its essential contribution to the quality of indoor air. Thus, public policies in terms of energy and environmental performance of the building must imperatively integrate the indoor air quality of the premises.
