Resource-efficient construction

EIO-ConstructionReport

'Resource-efficient construction' explores how eco-innovation can contribute to resource efficiency in the construction sector. The report argues that a more comprehensive approach to building and renovation is needed; one that looks at how both energy and materials can be efficiently used, and considers the trade-offs between them.

Widening the perspective to resource efficiency enables the systemic approach needed to frame discussions about sustainable construction because this perspective makes economic, social and environmental sense.

Hello Sebastian,

Thank you for your question. In fact, we have just published our second thematic report: Water innovation (see below). Check also the page with eco-innovation briefs; we will have more of these published in a matter of days.

In general, the Observatory publishes two thematic reports per year so 2011 reports will be published only late this year or early 2012. The topics are selected in collaboration with the European Commission. We will introduce short notes on the forthcoming reports to the webpage once the new topics are agreed upon.

Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any other questions.

Best wishes

Michal Miedzinski

First of all congrats for the great job. Do you have any schedule for the thematic reports or at least a list of the thematic reports that you will create?

Thanks
