Cover Story: The built environment is gaining importance in population health and well-being. This research investigated the prevalence of dampness related to specific building characteristics based on the PRISMA methodology. Key conclusions indicate a link between home characteristics and dampness-related predictors: the building age, the building materials, the type of ventilation system, and other building characteristics.View this paper

Investigation of the Effect of Aerosol Deposition by Applying Electrostatic Fields

Received: 07 September 2023;  Published: 01 March 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401009


Particulate matter (PM) constitutes a significant risk factor for environmental health regarding ambient air quality. An epidemiological investigation has determined that inadequate air quality is associated with the development of lung and cardiovascular diseases, chronic ailments, respiratory infections, and a significant number of fatalities on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the annual mortality rate due to air pollution is around 7 million individuals. The [...]

A Systematic Review about Building Characteristics as Dampness-Related Indicators

Received: 05 October 2023;  Published: 29 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401008


The consistent associations between dampness and health-related problems, such as allergies and asthma symptoms, explain the growing scientific interest in assessing housing characteristics. Due to a growing interest in the built environment, the present study performed a systematic review to investigate the prevalence of dampness related to specific building characteristics. The built environment is gaining significance in population well-being due to the substantial time spent indoors. This as [...]

Examining the Carbon Management Strategies of Diebold Nixdorf

Received: 28 July 2023;  Published: 17 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401007


Carbon management is imperative to curb global temperature increases and mitigating climate change impacts. This report explores the carbon management strategies employed by Diebold Nixdorf, a multinational financial and retail technology company. As of 2021, the company has not established specific reduction targets and has not committed to achieving net zero emissions. The company employs diverse carbon reduction strategies, such as carbon [...]

How do Water Companies Address Environmental Indicators in their ESG Reports?

Received: 26 July 2023;  Published: 30 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401006


As climate change is becoming an increasingly crucial issue, it has become critical for firms to report on their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) aspects. In particular, this research analyzes how environmental indicators are dealt with and reported on. In the case study examined, namely the company American Water Works, GHG emissions and water management were the most important issues to the stakeholders according to the materiality assessment. It was found that the firm has signific [...]

Environmental and Human Health Impact of Antibiotics Waste Mismanagement: A Review

Received: 22 September 2023;  Published: 22 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401005


The discovery of antibiotics and their use in the last century substantially shifted the management of an array of infections. However, its unprecedented irrational usage and inept disposal of their waste exposed the ecosystems to unquantifiable antibiotic deposits, triggering the emergence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) with its immeasurable critical risk to public health. By adopting a narrative review method and accessing the available literature, the a [...]

Road Traffic Pollution, Motor Driving Occupation and Human Reproductive Health- An Overview

Received: 20 October 2022;  Published: 22 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401004


Generally, automobile vehicles discharge specific contaminants into the surrounding environment during operation, which might affect human and reproductive health. Additionally, a more extended period of sitting while driving is linked with the manifestation of heat in the pelvic region, which might also impact the driver’s semen quality. The data on motor traffic pollution, sitting posture duration while driving, and their impact on reproduction was collected by searching various websites. The [...]

A Policy and Evaluation Framework for Sustainable Transitions - An Energy Policy Approach

Received: 15 May 2023;  Published: 15 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401003


The climate change and the social crisis launched the basis for the policy discussion about future trajectories of development and sustainability. Innovation policies are expected to promote the transformation of complex socio-technical systems and call for fundamentally different societal production and consumption patterns. This is strictly associated with energy systems and energy policies. A policy framework was conceptualized considering three levels approach: the policy shape at the micro [...]

Responsible Materials Stewardship: Rethinking Waste Management Globally in Consideration of Social and Ecological Externalities and Increasing Waste Generation

Received: 04 September 2023;  Published: 04 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2401002


Unsustainable material extraction, use and disposal - the ‘take-make-waste’ model - places communities globally in a state of social inequalities and environmental conflict (the slow violence of polluting the air, water, and soil we all depend). Current waste management practices are designed for efficiency of disposal but do not address increasing waste generation and waste externalities. The present global waste situation is magnified by exponential increases in plastic production; [...]
