In this episode, host Gabriella Joustra is joined by Dr. Trivess Moore, a Senior Lecturer in the Sustainable Building Innovation Lab (SBiLab) in the School of Property, Construction, and Project Management at RMIT University in Australia

Recently, zero-emission houses have gained significance due to concerns about the Earth getting warmer and resources being used rapidly. In this podcast, Dr. Moore explains that we can design less energy and less-polluted homes to benefit everyone and the environment by building zero-emission housing.

About the episode

During the podcast, Dr. Moore discusses how caring for the Earth is essential. Not only does this benefit the environment, but it also makes homes healthier and more comfortable and can even save money. In Dr. Moore’s view, adding plants to homes can make them warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, thereby saving energy. He emphasizes the importance of good air circulation to keep homes comfortable despite having hot weather outside.

Then, Dr. Moore talks about his most significant concerns about how to make old houses more environmentally friendly and less polluted. He believes that homes should be both energy efficient and comfortable. To create places more environmentally friendly, he believes that the government, people who build houses, and those who decide the housing rules all need to work together to change how the house should be made.

In his opinion, if houses don’t emit pollution, it can benefit people’s health and even save money on healthcare. Also, he speaks about how people can reuse things, like appliances, and how building more houses in a single area would reduce land use and resource consumption.

In conclusion

Concerns about global warming and the potential for resource exhaustion have increased the need for zero-emission homes in recent years. Zero-emission houses use less energy and cause less pollution, benefitting people, communities, and the planet.
