European Commission for DG Environment

Circular Economy, Sustainable Production and Consumption unit

Josefina Lindblom is working at the European Commission for DG Environment, in the unit of Circular Economy, Sustainable Production and Consumption. She has been responsible for the work on “sustainable buildings” since 2011 and has among other things managed the recent collaborative developments of Level(s), a common framework for the assessment and reporting of the environmental performance of buildings.

This work is at the heart of the efforts that the European Commission is doing to bring the building sector into the circular economy.

Josefina works to make life cycle thinking a key part of existing European building policy. Moreover, ongoing efforts relate i.a. to the development of a roadmap for the reduction of whole life carbon and the inclusion of life cycle thinking of buildings into Horizon Europe.

She has a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering Design from Chalmers Technical University of Gothenburg, Sweden, partly conducted at the Institute for Paper Science and Technology in Atlanta, the US.  ⇐ geri
