Indoor climate and sustainability

The indoor climate solutions we provide to buildings world-wide have a direct and indirect impact on the environment and people. So far we have described how product transparency is increased by using EPDs, how small things can make a difference in the pursuit of a circular economy and, in the film, how a people perspective of sustainability is of essential relevance.

Considering people in the context of developing, manufacturing and designing solutions for ventilation, heating and cooling, is to look at the outcome of a good indoor climate. Generally we spend about 90% of our lives indoors and we breathe 20 times more air than we eat food each day. A healthy and comfortable indoor climate is crucial for productivity and strategic thinking as well as for well-needed rest and overall well-being.

Declare - Ingredients used in the manufacturing process.

Swegon is the first major HVAC supplier to offer an air handling unit with the Declare label, providing disclosure of the ingredients used in the manufacturing process.

Declare helps specifiers use healthy materials by showing where a product comes from what a product is made of where a product goes at the end of its life and if a product contains toxic ingredients. Declare is the only label that combines material transparency and the Red List. It distills complex chemical ingredient information into an easy-to-read label. Declare helps architects, engineers and sustainability consultants quickly find, evaluate and specify products that are healthy for people, the environment, and communities. Products with the Declare label contribute to Living Building Challenge, LEED, WELL, CHPS and Enterprise Green Communities projects.
