Standard encourages sustainability in building construction

Thursday, 29 November, 2007

An ISO standard will help to ensure that urbanisation, which is a global trend, develops in an environmentally friendly manner.

"ISO 21930:2007, Sustainability in building construction - Environmental declaration of building products, will be a very helpful tool for the designers of buildings, manufacturers of building products, users of buildings, owners of buildings and others active in the building and construction sector who are increasingly demanding information that enables them to address environmental impacts of buildings and other construction works," said Jacques Lair, leader of the team of ISO experts that developed the standard.

The standard describes the principles and framework for environmental declarations of building products, taking into consideration the complete life cycle of a building. Because the users of these products expect non-biased information, it is essential to establish uniformity and consistency in the way environmental product declarations are made.
