On 30th June 2014, EUKN and CIPU (Cellule nationale d’Information pour la Politique Urbaine) organised the second edition of the EUKN Policy Lab in Luxembourg. The central theme of this Policy Lab was “Certification Systems for Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods”. During this policy lab an overview of some of the most common certification systems such as HQE Aménagement, LEED-ND, BREEAM or DGNB as tools to evaluate and maintain high quality standards in urban development was given. The potential and limits to the use of some of these systems were explored in more detail and Luxembourgish initiatives, policies and networks supporting the development of sustainable urban quarters were presented.
