Demand. At present, the living standard of Chinese is improving constantly. Specifically, the demand for living comfort, physical and mental health are increasing. Satisfying the pursuit of healthy working and living environment for the masses is the major task and great challenge for the building industry. Chairman Xi said, the party members should forever regard people's yearning for a better life as the goal, takes people-oriented as the development theme, and create more comfortable living condition for the people. Building is an important carrier of people's working and living. Taking advantage of fast green development, the most important point in considering individuals and benefitting individuals. From the demand of the people to the national strategy and to the trend of building industry, the development of healthy buildings is in the right time.
Action. From the standard perspective, CHBA is the main body which has established the “Assessment Standard for Healthy Building" by condensing the multi-disciplinary resources. This standard mainly contains six physical and mental health influencing factors in building which are air, water, comfort, fitness, humanity and service. In terms of industrial promotion, CHBA aims at expanding the multi-channel, multi-level and diversified innovation services around standard innovation chain to promote healthy building industry. In the field of engineering practices and social activities, there are totally 17 certified projects for healthy building label and 23 registered projects in China. After three years’ effort, healthy buildings have grown from concept to landing to initial scale in China. In the field of international cooperation, in 2017, CHBA and Construction21 reached a strategic cooperation in China and hosted the entire collection, review and submit work of 2017 "Green Solutions Awards" in line with the proposal of Ségolène Royal, the minister of French Environment ,Energy and Marine Affairs. Finally, the Chinese projects won 5 international awards and won the world's first place in "Health Building Solutions Awards". From setting standards to building CHBA, from scale to internationalization, the development of healthy buildings in China has been on the right track and the industrial framework has been initially established which lies solid foundation for the all-round and full cycle industry and service system.
Expect. The theoretical research, standard establishment, consultation and design, and engineering practice of healthy building have been carried out rapidly. However, the industrial service system, the supply and demand mechanism, and the industrial brand of upstream and downstream industries have not been established yet. The development of healthy buildings is still at the initial stage. Therefore, the development of healthy building industry needs governments, research institutes, financial institutions, real estate enterprises, product R & D enterprises, property service companies and other enterprises and institutions to strengthen collaboration and build a virtuous circle of industrial clusters together. At the same time, the development of healthy building industry needs more media attention and support. It will promote the development of healthy building industry by popularizing the concept of healthy building, setting up industry benchmarking, protecting healthy brand and cultivating healthy market.
This conference also contains pension industry and real estate transition topics which lasts for 2.5 hours. It provides a showing and communication opportunity for CHBA and C21 Green Solutions Awards, based on which more and more attention are expected to be paid on green and healthy transition of building industry.
