Level(s) – European common sustainable framework for buildings
9 marca,9:00 - 10:30
Slovak Green Building Council in cooperation with Czech Green Building Council are proud to invite you to attend our webinar on the new instrument for building quality assessment Level(s). We have the exclusive opportunity to introduce you to this new certification system for the first time in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Level(s) is a new European approach to assess and report on the sustainability performance of buildings, throughout the full life cycle of buildings. Level(s) is an assessment and reporting framework that provides a common language for sustainability performance of buildings. Level(s) promotes lifecycle thinking for buildings and provides a robust approach to measuring and supporting improvement from design to end of life, for both residential buildings and offices. Level(s) uses core sustainability indicators, tested with and by the building sector, to measure carbon, materials, water, health and comfort, climate change impacts. It takes into account lifecycle costs and value assessments. Level(s) brings minimum numbers of indicators, with maximum leverage to deliver sustainability. It tracks performance across the various stages of a building project, to give a complete picture throughout the full lifecycle.
WHEN: 9th on March 2021, 9:00 – 10:30
WHERE: Online via ZOOM
During the webinar, you will have the opportunity to find out more about the new European approach to assess and report on the sustainability performance of buildings Level (s). Level (s) using existing standards and with its indicators provides a common language for building sustainability, which can be used directly on building projects and portfolios, or as a basis for other initiatives, policies, schemes and actions, to include life cycle thinking and circularity.
Moderator: Peter Robl, Board member of Slovak Green Building Council
