Thermal insulation of buildings brings the social benefits mainly through energy savings. However, the risk of producing undesirable negative impacts on the environment and the health of the population is not negligible. Proper selection of the appropriate variant and product should include an assessment not only of the thermal, technical, operational, economic but also health and environmental aspects. In assessing the environmental and health impacts, only CO and sulfur emissions are often evaluated. The impact of other very dangerous chemicals released during the production of ETICS components and subsequently during the operation of the building is investigated only marginally. This aspect will be given the utmost attention and individual variants will be carefully examined also in this point of view. The public does not usually have enough quality data on the various available ETICS variants. The chosen method of thermal insulation should also be felt by the user in a positive way, which will contribute to the comfort and high standard of living.
