Buildings are the bedrock of our energy efficient future; but they are a major source of energy consumption – for maintenance and operation – and responsible for 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe.
To move the EU towards decarbonising its building stock by 2050, the revised Energy Performance of Building Directive (EPBD) will boost asset renovation, triggering a move towards net zero across the real estate sector.
To assist the real estate sector on the journey to net zero, the European Commission has created Level(s), a framework that provides a common language for assessing and reporting the sustainability of buildings, from design to end life for a range of stakeholders including sustainability professionals, asset designers, owners and investors, as well as policymakers and public authorities.
Arup was appointed to design the e-learning programme for the framework, which will help users understand how to apply Level(s) in their work environment. Our sustainability and learning experts have also created a redesign strategy for the Level(s) learning tools –Commission’s Let’s Meet Level(s) web portal and Level(s) – Sustainable performance in buildings learning course on EU Academy.More info
