The roundtable emphasized the role of energy certifications currently available in the sector, such as BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), a sustainability evaluation system for constructions. The discussion revolved around how to approach a contract project from a global sustainability perspective.
In this context, Alejandra Gandía-Blasco shared her vision on the objectives and strategies that we at the Gandia Blasco Group are implementing in our projects in the habitat sector and ephemeral architecture projects, revealing the connections between certified sustainable buildings and their equipment. This extends from our environmental and social responsibility policy to the relevant quality certifications in the search for the best suppliers and the continuous improvement of our production processes. In short, corporate practices aligned with the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations.
