It reflects a balance between respecting the environment, quality of life, economic performance through a global approach, and attests to the fact that the building reaches a level higher than the required regulations. It is used to control the impacts on the external environment by eco-construction (harmonious relationship of buildings with their immediate environment, integrated choice of construction processes and products, low-nuisance site, etc.) and by eco-management (management of energy, water, activity waste, upkeep and maintenance, etc.)
