About this event

Sustainable assessment systems for buildings, civil structures and neighbourhoods have now been with us for over 20 years.

What really have they achieved and what might be their legacy? Have they really moved the built environment toward sustainability?

It seems that now might be a good time to review their track record, their effectiveness, discuss alternatives and possible future developments.


Dr. Alex Amato
