About the ECOproduct method
SINTEF Building Research has been professionally responsible for the method up untill version 4.0.
Since then, Grønn Byggallianse (Norwegian Green Building Council) has taken over responsibility for the development and quality assurance of the method.
A panel consisting of representatives from various companies in the construction industry has been established that provides input to professional development. The Board of the Norwegian Green Building Council, which has representatives from the entire value chain in construction and real estate, is the decision-making authority for new versions.
