Challenges so far
• Low level of understanding even among healthcare workers
-> More promotion and sharing information

• Primarily concentrating on energy section


-> Leadership with environmentally comprehensive view

• Lack of research – low level of interests among academics


-> Stimulate research activities through KSGH

• Lack of data to analyze(e.g. indoor air quality)
