This session will explore the search for sustainable and zero pollution buildings and what it means in practice for Europeans, from extraction of materials through the use of buildings to their deconstruction, and the expected benefits for the comfort of people, the costs and improvements for health and environment.
It will explain the New European Bauhaus initiative by the Commission, set up to explore how real building projects can make a difference by applying principles based on “beautiful, sustainable, together”. In this session we will also outline how Level(s)* can support the Bauhaus initiative, as it provides a robust and tried and tested methodology to assess and report on the sustainability and circularity of buildings.
