In the property, design and construction industry the main focus of sustainability has been seen to affect the
environmental such as climate change and resource depletion. Even though building may meet the recommended standards overall, but yet occupants still complain about several aspects. Indoor environmental quality consequently affects health, productivity and well-being of building occupants as most of them spend their time in indoor space. Therefore they are at risks for air pollutant occurs in the indoor air of dwellings such as volatile organic compounds, paints, ventilation, and others environmental pollutant. This paper reviews the potential health consequences in changes of climates change whereby developed countries contributed in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. From the review search by 57 publications, the literature discussing about how thermal, acoustic and visual comfort as well as indoor air quality affects the satisfaction in indoor environmental quality and impacts to the human health. However, from the undertaken review most of the studies only highlighted on one aspects of indoor environmental quality. A number of critical aspects which give direct impacts to occupants have been identified. Subsequently, among all aspects such as lighting, ventilation, acoustics or humidity and thermal but thermal comfort perceived to influence overall satisfaction of occupants in the building. Thus, from the study revealed the critical aspects of indoor environment and contribute to the improvement for well-being and productivity of building occupants.
