WGBC ERN’s Stakeholders’ views on the Commission’s Sustainable Buildings Communication

Following the publication of the European Commission`s Circular economy package on 2 July including a “Communication on Resource efficiency opportunities in the building sector”, the Europe Regional Network of the World Green Building Council has collected a series of Stakeholder Views, including an article from the Active House Alliance. This collection of opinions is meant to allow for a better understanding of the issues at stake and enhance the dialogue on next policy steps among stakeholders and decision-makers.


Active House Alliance welcomed the Commission`s Initiative to develop clearly defined and measurable indicators for building performance and a supporting framework for implementation. However, it is of key importance that we take a holistic approach when proposing new measures in the buildings sector. Buildings should be evaluated on their performance regarding Indoor comfort, Energy efficiency and Environmental load. Only by such a holistic approach can we create the sustainable buildings of the future for people and society.

For the full Active House article on “Buildings Can Give More Than They Take” by Kurt Emil Eriksen, Secretary General of the Alliance see here.
