DG ENVI launches public consultation on Sustainable Buildings
The Directorate for Environment of the European Commission has launched a public consultation on sustainable buildings http://ec.europa.eu/environment/consultations/buildings_en.htm
The European Commission is seeking to gather views and additional information on the possible introduction of EU wide measures to achieve better environmental performance of buildings. Resource use and related environmental impacts all along the life-cycle of buildings are in the scope. The consultation puts forward questions related to the problem definition as well as to possible policy options. It looks at both demand and supply side measures. The consultation offers an opportunity to all interested parties to express their views and to provide additional information to the European Commission.
UEPC will prepare answers to this consultation, with Mr John Slaughter to elaborate the first draft, then members will be asked in due course to provide their inputs. The deadline for the consultation is set for 1 October.
