  • Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen!

    My name is Chris Hamans and I come from the Netherlands.

    I am working as an independent consultant after my retirement from the Rockwool International Group. I was working 30 years for Rockwool in several positions. The last 15 years I was responsible for Rockwool’s involvement and engagement in European regulations and standardisation on energy and sustainabilty related issues.

    I feel very pleased to share my view with you, on the present EU legislation and other related developments in sustainability
  • To say it in a friendly way:
    there is some overlap in the abundant number of initiatives!
    This is not new! This was already the case 5 years ago and it just continues!
  • There are many initiatives that have faced us already with Regulations and Directives and socalled Communications . And Regulations and Directives also need standards, parameters and methodologies.
    & (Click)

    Not all of the listed Regulation and Directives exclusively apply to construction products or to buildings.
    & (Click)
    In this list of rules that relate to sustainability, the most important and prominent certainly is the CPR, the Construction Product Regulation.
    Also The Waste Framework Directive and Reach relate to construction products and are linked to sustainability. All these (double crossed) pieces of legislation are already today applicable to construction products.
    & (Click)

    All the other European Commission initiatives are trying to make their own sustainability rules for construction products. Most of the initiatives now experience that construction products are much more complex to assess then the consumer products. Originally EcoDesign, Ecolabelling, Energylabelling, etc. are established for consumer products. At present windows are subject to a first pilot project to set EcoDesign criteria for them.


    & (Click)
    On the right side we have to measure sustainability performances. We know European product standards that provide us a “common language”: harmonised product standards en ETA’s.
    But they do not deal yet with the sustainability information of the product.
    This most probably will change in the very near future, as I will show you later on.
    For measuring sustainability performance meanwhile a whole set of sustainability standards is developed in CEN TC350, the European standardisation body.

    But then there is PEF, the Product Environmental Footprint. This is another , and new initiative of the European Commission to measure the environmental performance of whatever product (so including construction products). The aim: productcomparisson and selection. DG ENTERPRISE mandated in 2006 the CEN TC350 standards. DG ENVIRONMENT is now competing with a new methodology: PEF and did not want to exclude construction products.

    But then we also see that some Member States in their regulations and subsidy rules, apply or intend to apply, private building-rating tools like BREEAM, LEED, DGNB, etc.

    So there are many activities going on.....
  • There are just too many initiatives!

    & Click
    Private and public initiatives.
    Non coherent initiatives.

    All at the end, having however a very good intention: improve the product or a building, in terms of environmental performance or in sustainability in general.

    But too many initiatives are not productive!
    It will delay improvements and progress, in stead of speeding it up!
  • It is growing like mushrooms!

    & Click
    It is not coordinated and its overlapping.

    & Click
    And the worst thing is, the non-coordinated initiatives of many DG’s (Directorate General) in the European Commission: : without specific expertise of the construction sector they compete each other on sustainability.
    My personal view – my preference:
    let DG Enterprise deal with works-buildings and construction products.
    Because DG ENTERPRISE is best known with construction products and the construction sector.

  • Construction products are intermediate products.
    Construction products are no end-use products, but intermediate products.
    The end-use product is the building, the road, the bridge, etc.

    & Click
    A refrigerator for instance is different: it is an end-use product. But what about a construction product? (most construction products) & Click
    It can be applied in different ways, have different functions, different exposures, maintenance, lifetime, etc. Its environmental contribution all depends on the role in the building, the specific situation and conditions.
  • The CPR is probably the most important Regulation for the construction sector:

    And .... its basic starting point is the building.
    ( I have shown you this earlier this afternoon)
  • What about the other listed initiatives then?

    Their aim is selecting and comparing PRODUCT performance on selected criteria. Not within an holistic analyses of the products role and contribution to the building.

    & Click
    There is one initiative that wants to give an ECOlabel, on the entire building.

    This could work under certain conditions. But whether someone is really interested in comparing building performance by means of Ecolabels in different countries and different situations ….? I doubt; what may be the real use of it?
  • If only we could ....
    Make all understand that
    Sustainability it self cannot be a uniform performance over Europe
    Sustainability has global, national, regional, .. and private policies

    Construction products are not fast moving consumer goods

    If only we could ....
    Have the DG’s cooperate and not compete on sustainability
    Stop double initiatives, developing new methodologies and policies before results and experiences with the previous ones have been gained

    If only we could ....
    Use the standards the EC has mandated: CEN TC350 standards
  • But what about the standards and tools?

    How do they relate or could they be related to the rules and regulations?
  • No comment
  • How are standards and regulations linked?

    What to do with building rating tools?
  • It is important to know where to position standards and tools
  • Sustainability has many dimensions, many aspects and most aspects are interlinked.
    It is like the pieces of an endless puzzle. All what we do has consequences and impacts, for instance to the environment:
    The CO2 – emissions of a building have a global impact and the trafic generated by the users of a big office building, have an impact on the transportation system. And the use of the office building perhaps generates an important impact on the economic business aspects of the nearby restaurants and other shops in the neighbourhood. We could set the boundaries of the office building that also includes the public transport system, the economic impacts on the district, etc.... but 

  • We want to quantify the sustainabilty of the building it self.
    Not its impact on the public transportation, the electricity supply, etc.
    For this we want to quantify the contribution of a construction product to this sustainability performance.

  • It should be clear:
    an assessments according to the CEN TC350 system, is limitted to the sustainability assessment of the building
    and this requires specific data from the construction products and from the processes.
  • Please follow me on some principles which justify the use of these data in a regulation like the CPR, the Construction Products Regulation
  • Sustainability is based on three pillars: environmental, social en economic performance.
    This is a parallel to the well known People, Planet , Profit.

    The sustainability assessment quantifies impacts and aspects on the environmental, social and economic performance of buildings, using quantitative and qualitative indicators.

    This is a pure measurement of performance on defined criteria without value judgements: no qualifications, no benchmarking or rating.
  • Basic for any building or construction is the functional design.
    without meeting the functional needs there is no sustainability ( if this meeting room is not suitable to hold meetings like this, then the room or even the building is or becomes useless. It is not sustainable then.)

    If then the technical design is not fulfilling the envisaged lifetime and collapses or if it burns down already within a few years, then building will not be sustainable! If the acoustics are so bad that a meeting becomes a discomfort or even a health risc, then it is not sustainable!
    So, without meeting the technical needs there is no sustainability.

    All functional and technical needs are covered by the 6 Basic Requirements for Construction Works, as defined in the CPR.
    We have Eurocodes for designing and measuring the performances related to the 6 Basic Work Requirements.
    It is here (on the blue line) where the sustainability assessment starts: We measure the environmental, social and economic impact of the functional and technical solutions of the building and of the use of the building over a chosen lifetime.
  • What standards do we have for measuring this?
  • There is a logical and practical structure of standards.
  • We have standards on the Framework level:

    These standards define the principles and the relations between the different standards that follow.
  • Then,
    most important,
    we have the standards that define the methodologies - the calculations – for measuring the BUILDING performances
  • And as this requires data,
    that fit into that building calculation,
    there are a few standards that define the rules how to assess the product performance.

    On this level we produce also the EPD’s – the Environmental Product Declarations.
  • The building defines the need for data.
    The data-flow goes bottum-up.

    The information, both on product and building level, is modular. This allows:
    the use of product data in all building assessments,
    The aggregation of the data of all products and processes and
    tracing back their contributions or if you want, their role or importance on the building performance.
  • Slide not shown
  • I have shown before the 3 dimensions of sustainability: Environmental, Social and Economic aspects of sustainability.
    We have 3 sets of standards for it:

    Here you see the group of environmental standards. All standards are published.
    EN15978 is the standards for the environmental Building assessment.
    EN15804 for the product assessment and
    other supporting standards, like the use of databases and the communication.
  • Then there is the social pillar with the standard EN16309
    And ...
  • The economic pillar with
    the standard that defines the methodology and conditions for the Life Cycle Costing, EN16627.
  • And how is this all interlinked ?
  • We have standards, programs (or tools) and we have a regulator (“the government or the public authority”) or a private client.( the building owner or the investor)

    We have European standards now, as explained,
    and
    with the product information we are able to aggregate all product information into a building performance.

    The system and the methodology allows to use the product information of a product assessed in Rumania and applied in a building in the Netherlands because we communicate now in a “common language”.
  • Now the CPR comes in:
    Member States in the EU now have to agree what information (environmental product information) will be allowed to demand from a product so it can be applied in that Member State.
    This process of defing the so-called Essential Product Characteristics on environmental performance has started now!
    I assume it still will take some time before we all agree on the essential characteristics and a decission is made. But finally this will result in a mandate of the European Commission. The mandate orders to include a selected set of environmental indicators in the Annex ZA of a harmonised product standard.

    That is what started now for the Basic Works Requirement nr. 7 :”the sustainable use of natural resources”.

    So the CEN TC350 standards are needed for measuring the performances for the indicators that are defined in the product standards.
    At the end this also means that the environmental performance of the product is to be declared under the CE-marking and is to be listed in the Declaration of Performance (the DoP) for the product.
  • And what are the building rating tools doing?
    Meanwhile tools like BREEAM, DGNB in Germany and HQE in France and many more, are implementing the CEN TC350 standards in their methodologies. 
  • A building rating tool always starts quantifying the (e.g. environmental-) performance of the building by aggregating all the data related to the products and processes.
    After the quantification the rating or benchmarking is carried out.

    The quantification will be based on the standard EN15978 and requires product data declared on the basis of EN15804.
  • And then
    there is the client who orders a specific performance of the building.

    Or, like we know from the Netherlands already, the regulator has a requirement of performance for the building.

    A performance requirement
    (like the depletion of natural resources that are used,
    or the total amount of CO2 over the buildings lifetime – two performance indicators that are mandatory to declare to a building permission in the Netherlands) ,
    then requires also the choice of a methodology.
    Germany, has specified for all its governmental buildings that EN15978 shall be used for the calculating the performance.
    The Netherlands have a specified a methodology that related very much to the BREEAM methodology.

    But Member States are free to assign a methodology for the assessment of their buildings. Not for the products, as this would create a barrier to trade for products.

    But is there really a need for a 3rd. type of methodology?
  • Some Member States say:
    let us wait for the PEF methodology.
    &click

    the methodology applies other principles of measuring environmental performance and is noit suitable for aggregating the data into a building performance. PEF is intentionally made for product comparison.
    Something that does not work for construction products.
    &click

    My personal opinion therefore:
    No, we do not need another methodology.
    Use the data that we have now and use the methodologies that we have defined in the CEN TC350 standards.
  • And do we then still have a need for Ecodesign, Ecolabelling and Energylabelling of construction products?

    It could be a commercial label for marketing purposes of your product that is interesting you.
    & click
    But apart from the fact that the European Commission, all their consultants and industry, are still puzzling how to get this working for construction products,
    I think it is a waste of money!
    That on it self is not sustainable!
  • If,
    And only if,
    they may succeed to have a system for fair labelling etc,
    then please use the CEN TC 350 standards.
    So that it does not require another additional assessment and additional costs for the sector!
  • Of course this subject “sustainability”
    has many more angles to regulations and standards,
    but please accept that the APMCR and I had to amke a selection.
