4 Introduction / Introducción The building sector acts locally, solving problems on a local and regional scale, but must face challenges on a global scale that compel considering, in an integrated and complex way, the following issues: The world population s need for decent housing. Reducing the ecological footprint that is needed to do so, especially energy, considering its climatic effects. Promote an economic model which is solvent, sustainable and creates jobs. And all this must be done considering different realities and socioeconomic particularities in each region. The main aim of the World SB14 Conference is to propose and promote a Roadmap, to kick start a process that allows the building sector to define, as soon as possible, the local action plans that will give an effective answer to the global challenges, social and environmental, that it faces. La edificación es un sector que actúa localmente, y resuelve problemas a escala local y regional, pero que debe afrontar retos a escala global que le exigen considerar, de una manera integrada y compleja, las siguientes cuestiones: La satisfacción de la demanda de vivienda de la población mundial, considerando su evolución futura en el tiempo y en el espacio. La reducción de la huella ecológica necesaria para hacerlo, especialmente la energética considerando sus efectos climáticos. La promoción de un modelo de actividad económica solvente, sostenible y generadora de empleo de calidad. Y todo ello, teniendo en cuenta las diferentes realidades y particularidades socio-económicas de cada región. El objetivo final del Congreso Mundial SB14 es proponer e impulsar una Hoja de Ruta, poniendo en marcha un proceso que permita al sector definir los planes de acción locales orientados a dar, lo antes posible, una respuesta efectiva a los retos globales, sociales y ambientales, a los que se enfrenta. 4 Itinerario recomendado por Saint-Gobain para World SB14 Barcelona

Case studies. DE DIEGO, MARIANO. Arquitectura Racional. Valencia, SPAIN. COLOMA CAMPAL, ALBERTO. Habitat Project Manager, Saint-Gobain. Madrid, SPAIN. Summary We present a real success case of a collective building of 176 apartments, energy performance rated A built in Xativa (Valencia-Spain) by Arquitectura Racional (AR). The original project had started in 2005, before the approval of the first Spanish Building Technical Code (CTE2006) and was stopped from 2008 to 2012 as many others involved in new housing business crash. Interrupted building has then passed to bank property in that conditions (60% of structure built) and was bought by AR in AR have redefined then the project from both commercial and technical side to produce sustainable and efficient dwellings at very affordable prices, 20% lower compared to current market average prices for public housings. But beyond the project itself, a process of strategic planning of a building project and its construction is presented, based on the objective of maximum energy efficiency and sustainability performances and by means cost efficiency and innovative and industrialized solutions.

Summary The challenge set by the WSB conference is to propose and promote a Roadmap, to kick start a process that allows the building sector to define, as soon as possible, the local action plans that will give an effective answer to the global challenges, social and environmental, that it faces. Within the conferences overarching framework of empowering us to accelerate sustainable building results, this session focuses on a central proposition How can planners and investors benefit from best practice projects on sustainable buildings? with a detailed examination of real projects and experience in sustainability and efficiency through demonstration projects. 25 entities representing research, industry and construction sector, SMEs, or public bodies among others from 7 countries, and 11 demonstration new buildings in 6 different countries along Europe support answers on the following topics: Filling the gap between methodologies and real buildings: Implementing energy simulations, LCA, BIM and IPD methodologies for the design of a low energy building. The case study of the CIRCE II building in Zaragosa, Spain Lessons learnt from the NuOffice, Munich, Germany. Saving money through reduced energy and water use, adequate monitoring, and lower maintenance costs amongst others. Business models for energy efficient buildings in Public Private Partnerships (PPP). During the session, the question will be addressed from view points of different actors involved in sustainable building projects such as representatives of energy-efficient buildings RTD community (CARTIF Foundation, Fraunhofer IBP, Eurac, CIRCE Foundation, Ozyegin University, SP, University of Mons, University of Zaragoza), of architects and construction companies (Acciona Infrastructures, Dragados, 1A Ingenieros, Studio Luchin, Bdesign, Derome, Fiba Group, Format D2, Vue Sur Mons, Domag Gewerbepark, Facit GmbH), engineering and ICT companies (D Appolonia, Ingecon) of financial entities, business consultants and planning offices (Intesa SanPaolo Eurodesk, M5,) as well as from best practice show cases (NuOffice, CIRCE II building).

Summary This session will look at Europe s retrofit agenda, and particularly at solutions to ensure that the concepts of deep and staged deep energy renovation become realities. The EU now requires all countries to have in place a longterm strategy for the renovation of the existing building stock, aimed at deep and staged deep renovation. But with many renovations focusing on single measures or quick win packages of measures, how do we shift towards delivering a deeper as well as faster renovation rate? Speakers in this session will explore the following topics: The framework of legislation that DG Energy is overseeing in Europe to scale up and deepen energy renovations (Speaker 1). Cutting edge products and processes aimed at creating a whole-house approach (Speaker 2). Platforms evolving to ensure the supply chain can deliver on retrofit ambitions (Speaker 3). New business models aimed at delivering more energy savings in less time (Speaker 4). The session aims to look at evolving policy, products and business models aimed at a renovation revolution, for a target audience of academic, industry, and policy experts.

R&D Manager, Saint-Gobain Placo. SPAIN. ANTINK, ROY. Director Green Support, Skanska AB. Summary Quite often, when discussing about sustainable construction products, only so called green, bio-based or natural products are considered and perceived as good for the environment and for their users. Does this mean that traditional manufactured products and materials such as plaster, mineral wool, plastics, cement or concrete are not able to meet sustainability requirements? Or is it a sign that more information is needed on the market to compare sustainability credentials of construction products on a more transparent basis? What can be expected from the requirements regarding materials and construction products in building labeling schemes such as LEED, BREEAM, DGNB or HQE?To answer these questions, this session will focus on defining what is a sustainable construction product and how it can and shall contribute to the sustainable performance of the building as a whole. The benefits of a life cycle approach will be presented and panelists will debate on the information available on the market to enable comparison between different options. In particular, they will describe what reality lies behind the words LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) and green labels. Last but not least, the questions of recycling and recycled content will also be raised as these topics are gaining momentum through the political push toward a more circular economy. Keywords: Construction Products, LCA (Life Cycle assessment), EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), Ressource efficiency, Circular Econonomy.

Design Strategist: Learning Environments. Summary Investor, architects, developers and construction companies are more and more aware of the business case for green buildings and have started to measure the potential opportunities associated to this trend. However it is not necessarily the case of owners, tenants and users who are looking for tangible and easy to understand benefits. Beyond energy efficiency, and the associated reduced operating costs, the question that arises is: what are the other top arguments to promote sustainable buildings to this wider audience? At Saint-Gobain, we believe that sustainable buildings are not only energy efficient and environmentally performing but also more comfortable and healthier buildings. Combining five key aspects of comfort aesthetic, thermal, acoustic, visual and air quality - the Saint-Gobain Multi-Comfort Program shows through real projects how to achieve an exceptionally high level of building performance while creating a sustainable, comfortable, low maintenance and cost effective living environment. Designed to address key challenges of all building segments in different climate zones and building traditions it provides already today some valuable learning from its first realizations. This session will look at the potential benefits for people to live, work, learn and heal in sustainable buildings, with a focus on the following aspects: What is a sustainable building and how does this definition encompass comfort? What are the challenges of present and future sustainable building practices?. What do we mean by comfort and what are the different aspects / type of comfort? Do meaningful comfort indicators already exist?. Do comfort and well-being have a price?. Illustration and examples. Keywords: Sustainable building, Comfort, Well-being, Multi-Comfort.

Summary The world is changing at a faster rate than ever before. Whilst advances in science and technology have improved our quality of life, they have also highlighted how balanced is our environment. To address these issues we must change the way we design new buildings and renovate existing buildings so that we reduce their negative impacts on the environment. The construction process must preserve unique ecosystems, biodiversity and local landscapes, whilst ensuring a better quality of life and guaranteeing the health and safety of building occupants and users. Sustainable construction provides solutions that balance these sometimes contradictory issues and objectives. In this presentation, it is showing the real tools for implementation of this system include: Interpretation legal requirements to include in EPD. Different Eco Labels. The different stages of the building Life Cycle. Structure of a EPD for a Insulation Products. Itinerario recomendado por Saint-Gobain para World SB14 Barcelona 20

DE LATHAUWER, D. Federal Public Service Health; DG5; Environment and Product Policy. Brussels. BELGIUM. Summary There are many frontrunners, many good initiatives and we are gaining our first experiences with implementing sustainability in the construction sector. Some EU Member States already have defined sustainability related requirements, whereas some have announced to implement requirements in the coming legislation and others still specify their policies. They also are struggling to define the consequences of implementation of the Basic Requirement for Construction Works nr. 7, the sustainable use of natural resources. Meanwhile different Directorates of the European Commission are still competing each other with principally different approaches for a more sustainable construction sector. Industry and most of the Member States refer to European standards for quantifying the environmental, social and economic performance of construction products and buildings. The standards provide the common language for quantifying this sustainability performance: a harmonised methodology for the assessment of the environmental building performance is available with EN15978 and, based on EN15804, now product TC s are implementing environmental indicators in product standards. The core question is: Are we moving in the same direction? This session will provide indicative information on the European situation and developments in the area of policies, rules, regulations, standards for the construction sector and making data available: Plans of the European Commission and the role of CEN-Standards. The European Commission ordered the European Standardisation Organisation CEN to deliver an inventory of the existing regulatory and semi-regulatory requirements in EU-Member States affecting the products covered by harmonised standards related to the Basic Requirement nr. 7 for Construction Works: the sustainable use of natural resources. How will the EU manage the new challenges given by the complexity of sustainability? The Nordic Region as Standard Maker. The project defines common Nordic specific product category rules on sustainability (PCRs) for identified construction product categories being of the greatest interest to the Nordic construction sector How to position the Nordic PCR s against the specific PCR s of the CEN product TC s? Policies and Plans for implementing sustainability in the German build environment. The German policy and particularities resulting from the federal structure: present and future demands to buildings and consequences for new product performances to be declared. Policies and Plans for implementing sustainability in the Belgian build environment. The Belgium Royal Decree, notified at the European Commission, is demanding environmental product information, a methodology for quantifying building performance and the use of national databases: the Belgian policy embedded in the European context. 21 Itinerario recomendado por Saint-Gobain para World SB14 Barcelona
