In Switzerland today, housing is responsible for 25% of CO2 emissions.

This figure is not surprising when you consider that 3/4 of our country’s buildings are still heated by fossil fuels. Not to mention those with poor insulation. Not to mention our habits, which increase our heating consumption and electricity bills.

In this podcast we explore how to live greener. Is it possible to live without emitting CO2? We’ll be asking ourselves how we can transform our choices and habits to reconcile habitat, ecology and a pleasant life.

To investigate, I went to meet two pioneers:

  • Ivan Enderlin and his wife Hend have built a self-contained house in Murist. I wanted to know how they manage to produce all the energy and water they need from renewable sources, without relying on public networks.
  • David Moreau, from the négawatt association, works on housing and sobriety. I set out to understand how tenants can save energy and support a transition by influencing real estate boards.

And as always, we’ll end with a trip to the year 2040.

Welcome to a new episode of “2040 I’m going!
