Tiltnes elected chair of BREEAMNovember 2013
The new BREEAM Europe Board has elected Sverre Tiltnes, ceo of Norwegian Green Building Council (NGBC), as its first chair.
Tiltnes is a leading innovator in the Norwegian building and real estate sector, working to push forward sustainability changes in the market place. Before his appointment as chief executive officer of NGBC, he spent five years as manager of Norway’s EcoBuild programme and was project manager of the country’s unified selection process, which led to BREEAM being chosen as the national environmental assessment method.
The BREEAM Europe Board has been formed to help set the strategic direction for the standard and further develop the National Scheme Operator network in Europe. It includes a representative for each national scheme, and its functions range from lobbying and influencing EU sustainability policy to contributing to BREEAM’s core standards by identifying EU-specific requirements.
BREEAM National Scheme Operators are already active in Norway, the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Sweden and the UK. The election of Sverre Tiltnes testament to his own and Norway’s drive to make BREEAM the gold standard for Europe alongside the UK and other European countries.
