As part of the European Research programme, COST (Cooperation in Science and Technology), since 2017 a network of researchers and experts from industry, academic and technological development organisations have been actively addressing the question of what would a paradigm shift in sustainability in the built environment sector look like. A new paradigm calls for a more comprehensive and holistic approach to sustainability, one that focuses less on energy, but rather on actively contributing to the regeneration and improvement of people, society and planet health.
