Evaluation process

The juries consist of independent, renowned representatives from science, business and society. They evaluate entries against the “target issues” for sustainable construction.

“Target Issues” for Sustainable Construction:

The five “target issues” defined by the LafargeHolcim Foundation quantify the degree to which buildings contribute to sustainable development. The IUCN Conservation Centre uses only 20 percent of the electricity consumed by a conventional building of its size and creates an exceptional indoor atmosphere that promotes social integrity and interaction. An overriding principle applied throughout the building is economy of means, achieved through lean design, “skin-and-bones” architecture, multifunctional building elements, and functional synergy where combined effects achieve better economic and ecological performance.
