sustainable construction

In 2010, the Sustainable Construction glossary, produced by the Architects Council of Europe (ACE) and the European Concrete Platform (ECP), was launched.  This was followed by the launch, in 2011, of the multilingual versions of the glossary produced by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC). This project is a response to the growing need for more sustainable construction, and the need to provide greater clarity on the new concepts, phrases and terms that are being increasingly used across Europe.
