Financed by the Institute for Climate and Society (iCS), the initiative had its coordinator, the architect Maria Andrea Triana, as its spokesperson.
Entitled “The potential of sustainability in the management of public buildings,” the address disclosed the results of the analyses of the consumption of energy and water by the public buildings in three pilot cities. It provided evidence as to how the public management of these items can generate significant potential savings, as well as enabling the implementation of strategies in public policies.
