70-80%
of all environmental impacts
Better building practices in the EU allow for:
reducing by 42% our final energy consumption
cutting by 35% GHG Emissions
minimizing by 50% all extracted materials
lowering by 30% the water consumption
".. is [a] development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
UN Brundtland Report (1987)
Let us remember what sustainable development means..
Ecocity?
Sustainable City?
Sustainable Communities?
No common Definition!!!!
Sustainable communities are places where people want to live and work, now and in the future. They meet the diverse needs of existing and future residents, are sensitive to their environment, and contribute to a high quality of life. They are safe and inclusive, well planned, built and run, and offer equality of opportunity and good services for all.

Sustainable Communities Plan UK, Gov.
"..the goal of sustainability in a city as the reduction of the city's use of natural resources and production of wastes while simultaneously improving its livability.."
