Consultation on EU framework of indicators for the environmental performance of buildings until 7th October 2016 (GEN – 707.00)

GEN – 707.00. The European Commission has started this project on resource efficiency in building in 2015. Since the Public Consultation started the Joint Research Centre (JRC) has published the technical background Working Paper 2 on indicators.

The consultation can be accessed at this web until:

https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/Efficient-Building-EU-Indicators

The Working Paper 2, that numbers 248 pages, can be downloaded from the project website here:

http://susproc.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Efficient_Buildings/documents.html

The paper outlines two set of major objectives:

Life cycle environmental performance’ macro-objectives for buildings

Greenhouse gas emissions from building life cycle energy use: Minimise the total GHG emissions along a buildings lifecycle, with a focus on building operational energy use emissions and embodied emissions.

Resource efficient material life cycles: Optimise building design, engineering and form in order to support lean and circular flows, extend long-term material utility and reduce significant environmental impacts.

Efficient use of water resources: Make efficient use of water resources, particularly in areas of identified long-term or projected water stress.

Quality, performance and value’ macro-objectives for buildings

Healthy and comfortable spaces: Design, construction and renovation of buildings that protect human health by minimising the potential for occupier and worker exposure to health risks.

Resilience to climate change: The futureproofing of building thermal performance to projected changes in the urban microclimate, in order to protect occupier health and comfort.

Optimised life cycle cost and value: Optimisation of the life cycle cost and value of buildings, inclusive of acquisition, operation, maintenance, disposal and end of life.

Within this Working paper one may find some interesting views on (forecasted) running costs of office buildings according to their year of construction 1961, 1991 and 2011.
