Introducing Level(s): a common language for sustainable buildings


To improve sustainability and drive market demand for better buildings, a new, open source assessment framework, Level(s), has been developed by the European Commission in close collaboration with stakeholders including Skanska, Saint-Gobain, Sustainable Building Alliance and Green Building Councils.



"Level(s) is a key development to help grow the green building market in Europe. We strongly believe it forms the foundations of a new 'common language' for all European green building professionals, which the market must now adopt to help shift standard practice towards 'better practice'. Over time our hope is that 'best practice' certification becomes a reality for many more projects," says James Drinkwater, Director of World Green Building Council’s Europe Regional Network.
