ASHRAE is celebrating the importance of safe and healthy structures during High Performance Building Week. The event runs through Friday.

An estimated 200 organizations are using the occasion to lobby for policies and laws to boost energy efficiency and healthy workplaces and employees.

“The building industry clearly recognizes how energy availability, cost and environmental impact is driving change in the way we design, construct and operate buildings,” says 2017-18 ASHRAE President Bjarne W. Olesen, Ph.D. “The discussions taking place during High Performance Building Week will ultimately lead to the development of more sustainable infrastructures and innovations that will improve the quality of our lives and produce a more sustainable world for future generations.”
