Adapt these instruments to Spanish needs and legislation, taking into account the particularities of all the different geographical areas.
c) Research and cooperate with other associations, both in Spain and internationally, in the investigation for improvements in sustainable building. Developing and managing reliable and up to date tools and methods that allow the environmental qualityassessment of the building process: design, material selection, construction and life.
d) Join forces with Public Administrations, Universities, Corporations and National and International Associations to promote our principles and good practices in sustainable building design and construction.
