Construction21 was created by a consortium of nine partners (IFPEB, ESCI, UCV, ANCE, DGNB, PE, RoGBC, VGTU and CIRIDD) wishing to accelerate the environmental transition of the building market. The project, winner of the "Intelligent Energy for Europe" call for proposals, received significant support from the European Union during the first two years (May 2011-May 2013).
Construction21 is also closely linked to BUILD UP, the European Commission portal on energy efficiency in buildings, which publishes all the case studies and news from the international Construction21 platform.
