As part of the project, ReNaturalNZEB – Recycled and Natural Materials and Products to develop Nearly Zero Energy Buildings with low carbon footprint (LIFE17ENV / ES / 000329-LIFE), took place on 23 and 30 March 2021, in virtual mode, the training action “Ecological Purchases in the Construction Sector”, organized by LNEG. It aimed to present and support the inclusion of environmental criteria in public procurement practices for the construction sector. This training action was given by Paula Cayolla Trindade, a researcher at the LNEG Resource Economics Unit and responsible for the Sustainable and Circular Procurement area.
It had the presence of 12 participants from companies of the construction sector, from municipalities and entities from the scientific and technological system linked to construction, in identical proportions (33%). It is also worth highlighting the involvement of key players in the construction process: 27% of civil engineers, 18% of administrative technicians, 18% of purchasing technicians and 9% of architects. In terms of overall satisfaction, the training activity was rated by the participants as excellent (average value of 4.5) and the participants declared that the training activity was very well organized and had a great trainer.
The ReNaturalNZEB project is coordinated at LNEG by Ana Paula Duarte (Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Unit) and involves 6 partners between private and public institutions, from Portugal and Spain. The coordinator is the Directorate-General for Architecture of the Junta de Extremadura, Spain.
