Buildings winning the “Exemplary Buildings” calls for proposals organised by the Brussels-Capital Region with the aim of encouraging initiatives in eco-construction and integrated renovation. To be selected, winners must fulfil a series of criteria with regard to energy and management of water and waste, but also comfort and aesthetics, all while remaining financially accessible for the Brussels market.
Call for Proposals
Public initiatives winning the “Sustainable Neighbourhoods” call for proposals organised by the Brussels-Capital Region with the aim of supporting initiatives of residents in creating a neighbourhood dynamic on various issues: energy savings, waste reduction, rationalisation of consumption, air quality, preservation of quiet areas, promotion of natural heritage, strengthening social cohesion, etc.
Sustainable Neighbourhood Contracts
Neighbourhood contracts allow investment in a neighbourhood in difficulty by simultaneously taking action on housing, public areas (urban renovation), the economic life of the area and the social cohesion of the residents. Since 2010, these revitalisation activities have been oriented more toward protection of the local environment. This is why they are now called “Sustainable Neighbourhood Contracts”
Natura 2000 is a vast European network of natural and semi-natural sites protected because endangered fauna and flora live there. In Brussels, 2300 hectares are protected in these “Special Areas of Conservation” (SACs).
The “Ecodynamic Enterprise” label rewards Brussels businesses that demonstrate environmental dynamism and their progress with regard to, in particular, waste management, rational use of energy, management of the mobility of workers, etc.
This certification is awarded to applicants each year by the Brussels authorities, with one, two or three stars according to the efforts made by the business.
In a city, play areas are an important component of the quality of the living environment. The Brussels-Capital Region has woven a significant “play network” on the scale of the region, sometimes integrated into parks or other green spaces, sometimes located in public squares or on unoccupied urban land.
The Green Promenade is a magnificent route of over 60 km that allows pedestrians and cyclists to tour the Region and pass through numerous parks and nature areas with an amazing diversity of landscapes.
