- Mass certification of building sustainability
Sustainable models for buildings evaluation (CESBA) were presented. Indicators and their possible simplification needed for mass certification were discussed. The usage of such tools for green public procurement was demonstrated and other implications of mass certification of building sustainability were discussed (green municipalities etc.).
The main debate was focused on a need of simple yet effective tool for assessment the sustainability impact of new project. The tools currently available are too complex to operate and understand, and as such it is hard to implement in green public procurement.
The usage and importance of different aspects regarding development of sustainable buildings were presented (integrated design, airtightness, nZEB, heat pumps, windows).
