The Architects’ Council of Europe responds to the EU Commission’s consultation on indicators for the assessment of environmental performance of buildings.
Last week, the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) submitted a response to the public consultation of the EU Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) on draft indicators for the assessment of the environmental performance of buildings. While welcoming this initiative, ACE calls for greater recognition of architecture in the project development.
In its Communication of July 2014 on Resource Efficiency Opportunities in the Building Sector, the EU Commission announced the development of a EU framework of indicators to assess the environmental performance of buildings. These indicators shall help building professionals and their clients to prioritise their focus for making environmental improvements, as well as facilitate greater comparability of data and results from assessment and certification schemes.
ACE welcomes this initiative: transparent and harmonised metrics are needed to transform our built environment to require significantly less natural resources, to be healthy, comfortable and productive. Furthermore, these indicators may help to establish a new consensus on the definition of building quality.
