This report does not claim to put this argument completely to rest, but it does put forward the best and latest information on the building design features that are known to have positive impacts on the health, wellbeing and productivity of office occupants and points to financial implications where possible. Further – and what distinguishes this report from others – it provides a high-level framework for building owners, occupiers and their advisors to start tracking the impacts of buildings on employee health, wellbeing and productivity in order to use that information in financial decision-making.

In recent years, the European higher education community has played an increasingly important role in moving disaster science from a responsive, primarily technical discipline, to a broad, multi-disciplinary movement that seeks to build societal resilience to disaster. This movement coincides with the increasing global emphasis on the need to tackle the inter-related challenges of disaster risk reduction, sustainable development and climate change.
In 2005 the United Nations convened the Second World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan. During this conference the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters (HFA)1 was negotiated and adopted by 168 countries. This international agreement shifted the paradigm for disaster risk management from post disaster response to a more comprehensive approach that would also include prevention and preparedness measures.
The HFA outlined five priorities for action, and offered guiding principles and practical means for achieving disaster resilience. Its goal was to substantially reduce disaster losses by 2015 by building the resilience of nations and communities to disasters. This meant reducing loss of lives and social, economic, and environmental assets when hazards struck. It was intended to secure the commitment and involvement of all actors concerned, including governments, regional and international organizations, civil society including volunteers, the private sector and the scientific community. The five priority areas for action were to:
Ensure that disaster risk reduction is a national and a local priority with a strong institutional basis for implementation.
Identify, assess and monitor disaster risks and enhance early warning.
Use knowledge, innovation and education to build a culture of safety and resilience at all levels.
Reduce the underlying risk factors.
Strengthen disaster preparedness for effective
response at all levels.
HFA also provided the basis for many other initiatives, including the Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR), the Global Risk Identification Portal (GRIP), and the UN campaign on Making Cities Resilient.
Since the adoption of the HFA, countries in all regions have been reporting steady progress in strengthening their institutional, legislative and policy frameworks. Many have suggested that this has contributed to

decreasing mortality risk, especially from floods and tropical storms. Progress has also been made in risk assessment, education, research and public awareness, and many countries have been increasing their investments in risk reduction, as well as developing risk-transfer mechanisms. Such reports suggest that the HFA has been an important instrument in raising institutional awareness and understanding, while also instilling political will.
In 2010, the recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive [Directive 2010/31/EU] introduced the idea and requirement for nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB), particularly for new buildings. According to the EPBD, [a nearly zero energy building is a] “building that has a very high energy performance… [ ]. The nearly zero or very low amount of energy required should to a very significant extent be covered by energy from renewable sources, including renewable energy produced on-site or nearby.” Briefly, the Directive only defines the big picture giving considerable latitude to Member States to refine it. Therefore, the nZEB concept is very flexible with no single, harmonised nZEB definition throughout the EU. Member States are responsible to define in their national plans what constitutes an nZEB while considering the feasibility of implementing such a concept in their national contexts. These definitions were expected to be included in the MS National Energy Efficiency Action Plans which are expected to be reviewed by the Commission by the end of 2015.
