In late 2015 iiSBE launched an international pilot survey project to identify useful approaches for reducing GHG emissions in the built environment. The pilot survey was sent out to a group of contacts and provided a good set of responses (see attached document). The final survey is now ready to be given global distribution to a broad range of stakeholders, and it is expected that the results will provide new perspectives on GHG mitigation strategies.

The primary objective of the survey is to provide a bottom-up and more regionally specific view of possible GHG mitigation measures to complement the many top-down policies developed by governments and large non-profit organizations.

Impact and Results

The project is at the launch stage, and it is therefore premature to discuss impacts or results.

Next steps and how to get involved

We strongly encourage colleagues in universities, NGOs or professional associations in the sector to contact us, if you have a possibility to promote the survey, or to distribute the resulting analysis in your region and/or to your membership.

Please contact Dr. Ruben Paul Borg at or Nils Larsson at so that we can discuss ways of working together.
