Our Data Services Team has been appointed by the European Commission, the Directorate General for Energy, to maintain and update the EU Building Stock Observatory.

A square building with glass cladding

Led by Head of RICS’ Data Services Team David Crosthwaite, we will lead a consortium of suppliers (BSRIA and Luxoft) working with Government, and construction and energy efficiency stakeholders on this exciting and demanding project.

The aim of the project is to improve the monitoring of the energy performance of the built stock across 28 EU member states and contribute towards providing measurable data and evidence on the progress towards reaching both EU and national policy objectives regarding energy efficiency in buildings.

The project & our role

Our role on this project is to provide high-quality, relevant, objective and independent data to facilitate measurement and represents a considerable opportunity for us to support the profession. This work builds on our already strong credentials in driving the sustainability agenda in the built environment.

The project will allow for a better understanding of the impact and effectiveness of policy measures while also providing measurable evidence on the progress towards reaching agreed climate change goals.

This is an exciting project for RICS to be part of and I am delighted that we are able to use our expertise and independence to support this important agenda.
This appointment is recognition of our extensive expertise and experience in the sustainability area and our insight into the fundamentals of construction activity. The project will offer us the invaluable opportunity to build on our existing knowledge in this field, help with the adoption of standards and add value to a key client for our organisation.
