EESC launches Sustainable Construction Glossary for Sustainable Energy Week

To mark the start of this year's EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW), the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), the Architects Council of Europe (ACE) and the European Concrete Platform (ECP) have launched a multilingual sustainable construction glossary.


This glossary is currently available in both a handy book and electronic format. Translations into the other official EU languages will be available in the autumn of this year. More information on the launch conference and the publication is available on the ESSC website:

The original English wiki version was launched during the 2010 EUSEW and is already being used by the construction sector, policy-makers at national and European levels and for communications, education and training.

“A final achievement of our project has been the incorporation of the terms and definitions in the interactive database of terms used by the translation services of the EESC and the European Commission” states Selma Harrington, president of the ACE. “This means that our work is guaranteed a further life and, in due course, its continued use will mean that it will become better and better with age – like a good wine."
