Switzerland

As a non-EU country, Switzerland is not obliged to implement the EPBD, not even in the frame of the bilateral contracts. However, as a full member of CEN, the Swiss Association for Standardization (SNV) has – as all other CEN members – agreed to adopt all European standards and publish them as national standards. For the building area, this has been delegated to the Swiss Association of Architects and Engineers (SIA).

However, so often we work in silos, trying to leverage our specific expertise only. The problem is that climate change is complex. The challenges we face and transformation we need impact a huge variety of actors, topics and fields in an interrelated way. These are not separated by expertise or field, so our approach to overcoming climate-related challenges can’t be siloed either.
