Conference on Sustainable Buildings: Level(s)

Start/End date
Event type

The building sector is shifting towards sustainability, but the pace must accelerate if Europe is to deliver a circular economy, realising the sector's emissions, resource efficiency and socio-economic potential. This conference will explore the growing support across Europe for Level(s), the European Commission’s new sustainable building reporting framework, which aims to provide the insights that will shape future building sector policy.

Level(s) is aimed at creating a common European drive towards improved performance across six areas: lifecycle emissions, resource efficiency, water use, health and comfort, resilience and adaptation, and cost and value. With over 130 building projects in 21 countries now testing Level(s), you are invited to join the conference to network with the community shaping the future of EU building sector policy, and hear from market-leading voices including:

  • Karmenu Vella - European Commissioner for Environment, Fisheries & Maritime Affairs
  • Lars Ostenfeld Riemann, Executive Director, Buildings, Ramboll
  • Cees van der Spek, Public Affairs & Global Corporate Relations Director, OVG Real Estate
  • Derk Welling, Senior Responsible Investment & Governance Specialist, APG Asset Management

Attendees will also hear from organisations testing the Level(s) indicators on projects across Europe. These testers will share their experiences of testing Level(s), including their rationale, approach and feedback on their testing experience. Lastly, representatives from leading Brussels associations across the construction and real estate sector will debate the role of Level(s) in shaping the EU's future sustainable buildings policy.
