For the first time in Europe, Romania Green Building Council organized the Living Building Challenge workshop, in the Romanian capital. The main mission was to present the most demanding ecological certification in the world.

“It is important that we prove the concept that ‘deep green’ or ‘restorative buildings’ are beneficial for green economic growth, for improving our building stock, and, of course, restoring the health of our planet.   As Europe debates the Net Zero Energy Building criteria for year 2020, we believe the Living Building Challenge represents the most ambitious interpretation of how are buildings need to be and we and our member companies will deliver them soon as aspirational yet practical examples of what is possible,” said RoGBC President Steven Borncamp who was recently appointed Managing Director of the campaign to promote the Living Building Challenge in Europe.

Trainer arh. Adrian Pop presented the criteria of the Living Building Challenge, emphasizing the importance of demonstrating the 1 year performance as a Net Zero Energy Building, and the requirements to collect and process all water on site, and to build only on brown field or existing building sites.

In the end we wish to thank our partners and hosts AECOM and Cervantes Institute for their support in organizing our event.
