A number stakeholders subgroups have been set up to support progress of the study. A brief overview of each of these subgroups is provided below, together with a listing of the members of each subgroup.
Registration for these subgroups is now closed, however interested stakeholders can still register to be kept informed about progress of the study.
Please provide us with your contact details by registering, so we can keep you informed of progress, findings, consultations and events.
During the course of this study we would welcome your feedback on any of the issues raised. You can contact us at the project email address: JRC-IPTS-EFFICIENT-BUILDINGS@ec.europa.eu or alternatively, you can always contact the project team directly.
Members of the project Steering Group (SG1)
The steering group for the project has been selected by DG ENV and DG GROW to provide strategic, professional external guidance on the direction of the study and broad representation of the different actors within the industry – namely the supply and demand side, public sector policy, existing building assessment schemes/reporting tools, sectoral research bodies, NGOs and networks.

Members of the macro-objectives expert Sub Group (SG2)
A small group of academics, policy researchers and practitioners that are experts in their field have been selected to provide guidance on the identification of the macro-objectives. Their expertise is intended to reflect the three main areas covered within the first working paper - EU/MS environmental and resource efficiency policies, building life cycle 'hot spots' (including induced impacts) and the prioritisation of existing assessment/reporting tools.
|EU and MS policy frameworks||Till Bolland||German Federal Environment Agency|
|Teresa Domenech||University College London|
|Paul Ekins||University College London|
|Resource efficiency, top down LCA ‘hot spots’ and induced impacts||Michael Hiete||University of Kassel|

|Existing assessment and reporting tools||Ricardo Mateus||University of Minhu|
|Gareth Roberts||Sturgis Carbon Profiling|
|Observers||Pawel Kazmierczyk||European Environment Agency|
|Almut Reichel||European Environment Agency|
Members of the macro-objectives expert Sub Group (SG3)
A small group of building sector specialists in project-level aspects of resource efficient construction, renovation and operation have been selected to provide guidance on the identification of the core indicators. Members of this group have been involved in real life cases of construction, renovation, operation, monitoring and evaluation where particular emphasis was placed on resource efficiency.
|Macro-objective 1||François Durier||QUALICHeCK Project (CETIAT, France)|
|Jessica Karhu||Green Building Council Finland|
|Simon Sturgis||Sturgis Carbon Profiling|

Members of the main stakeholder Sub Group (SG4)
Following a selection process carried out by DG ENV, DG GROW and DG JRC, the members of the main stakeholder group for the study have been confirmed.
Over 120 registrations of interest were received which, because of practical constraints, have had to be reduced down to 35. In order to do this the criteria listed on the 'Register' page of this website were used to ensure as balanced and broad a representation as possible. In addition, and reflecting the findings of our initial research, consideration was given to the most significant types of construction materials from a market and life cycle perspective – namely concrete, ceramic, steel and wood.
We thank all the individuals and organisations that registered their interest. Stakeholders who did not make it to the Sub Group will be added to the project’s mailing list so that we can keep them informed about the progress of study, including meeting minutes and publications. We may also contact some of the stakeholders who were not selected for the main group to take part in technical sub-groups during the study.
