Workshop | Sustainable Finance in Building Projects: The EU Taxonomy & Financial Risks of the Performance Gap


Date Tuesday May 24
Time 14:15 - 15:45
Theme Energy
Location Rotterdam C

This workshop will focus on bridging the gap between the financial community and technical expertise in building projects through the integration of Quality Management Services (e.g. Technical Monitoring, Building Commissioning, Green Building Certification). These services help to detect and mitigate the technical risks in the early-development stage of a building project and ensure that the “performance gap” between desired and actual energy performance is minimized. Within this context the Taxonomy will be discussed as this creates a common language for both investors, architects and building services engineers and aims to bridge the gap between all actors.

The workshop will be tailored towards building professionals on the topic of working with financial actors, the impact of the EU Taxonomy on these relations and how quality management can support. The session will start with a keynote speech by the outgoing REHVA President Frank Hovorka, on sustainable finance and impact of the Taxonomy. This will be followed by interactive presentations on quality management services, a practical methodology on how to integrate them in building projects and how they can support projects to be aligned with the Taxonomy. During and in-between the presentations questions will be asked to the audience to create discussions and exercises will be done to get their input.
