Bangalore EEB Laboratory, 3-5 March 2015

Lafarge co-chairs the EEB initiative of WBCSD worldwide. Lafarge is also one of the major local partners of WBCSD for EEB 2.0 Labs in India and is an active member of the technical committee.     




 

Recognizing the significance of energy consumption by buildings, which account for 35 % of energy consumption, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) initiated the cross-industry Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) project in 2006. By bringing together major companies across the construction value chain, the project aims to achieve a transformation of the building sector, to reach an 80% reduction in energy use by 2050. Completed in 2010, the first phase of the EEB project (EEB1.0) sought to create an understanding of both the challenges and opportunities within the building sector, delivering a roadmap for market transformation to improve energy efficiency.

 

EEB2.0 project has been launched with an objective to unlock financially viable energy efficiency investments that today are not being realized because of mostly "non-technical" barriers. The cornerstone of each local market engagement is the EEB Laboratory (EEB Lab), which aims to get a clear understanding of the market situation and, with the help of a panel of experts, deliver on an action plan for achieving market transformation with a set of clear local stakeholders' commitments.

 

Bangalore EEB Laboratory, 3-5 March 2015

 

WBCSD and its local partners are hosting a deep-dive workshop to support the development and implementation of ambitious, practical strategies for reducing building energy consumption in the Bangalore market. The EEB Laboratory will take place March 3-5 2015 in Bangalore. During three days, it will seek to convene building market stakeholders - namely city representatives, policy makers, developers, investors, designers, engineering firms, facility managers, owner-occupiers, and corporate tenants - to facilitate dialogue, definition of action, and commitments.

 

While Lafarge co-chairs the EEB initiative of WBCSD worldwide, Lafarge India is also one of the major local partners of WBCSD for EEB 2.0 Labs in India and is an active member of the technical committee.
