English term or phrase:an “eco-rating” following certification
In a workshop held in January 2007, experts from the Stuttgart administration, the building industry, and politicians were introduced to a new set of processes and tools aimed at improving environmental sustainable development targets. These processes and tools were developed for new buildings by Tilburg, one of the REVIT project partners (further details on can be found in the City of Tilburg report). Tilburg has developed a tool called the “GPR Gebouw” and has used this method successfully since 1996: it now forms an integral part of its environmental policy standards. One of the advantages of this approach is that buildings can be awarded an “eco-rating” following certification, which assists with improving their marketing potential, based on quality and levels of sustainability.
