General Information

The Ambitious Climate Leadership EU Network is an informal groups comprising of individual experts, entrepreneurs, business associations and professionals who share an ambitious vision for the ecological transition and work together to carry out concrete actions, pursue and implement transformation projects for maximum impact.

Pathway Pledges


  • Implement efficiency measures to reduce energy and resource consumption and emissions within the construction sector: : Leverage my cooperation with buildingSMART France by fostering the design and uptake of climate and environmental KPIs – with a full lifecycle management approach – in construction and infrastructure sectors.
  • Fully exploit the potential of BIM and Digital Twins to this aim and to contribute to fostering cross-sector integration and sub-systems’ interfaces, i.e., via common taxonomies, allowing the achievement of "holistic" territorial government models that break the boundaries of siloes and work across industries and regions.
  • Promote innovative sustainable procurement practices to reduce the ecological impacts of industry sectors;
  • Accelerate the uptake of innovative technologies, integrating nature-based-solutions and traditional knowledge, adopting collaborative systemic design approaches, such as PLM, to ensure enhanced efficiency and sustainability from the design phase of a project, product or consumption model, working with SMEs, larger companies and local governments, and building coalitions around living labs of significant size.

More information on the pledge

  • Single actions and/or projects will be developed according to their respective timelines; I.e., project for a complete energy renovation and resource consumption overhaul of one of the main engineering schools in France will be started-up after the tendering design and implementation phase (ongoing; deadline: end 2023).
  • The first deliverables for the Commission to monitor (and assess the success of the project against), will be the upcoming tenders for the first lot of works, that are foreseen during 2023.
  • These tenders will demonstrate the full integration of comprehensive ecological KPIs in the tender criteria, against which offers will be evaluated.
  • The model adopted by the engineering school will also allow to anticipate the impacts of the renovation and management phases, in terms of reduced consumption of resources and energy, including the full lifecycle of the built and infrastructure assets, against a BAU scenario and with a view at achieving the EUGD 2030/2050 objectives.
  • The impacts will be fully monitored against the dynamic modelling of the digital twin, that will ensure optimal and most efficient allocation of resources throughout the construction phase, with enhanced transparency. The modelling will also allow for optimal management of the assets in the post construction phase, including “governing” (i.e. steering) end uses and individual behaviours, The model is fully transferable, and can be applied to territorial government functions, with a view at further accelerating the transition.
