Over three days in April 2015, the 5th edition of the Energy Efficiency in Building Laboratory
(EEB Lab)1 was held in the city of Rio de Janeiro, a business sector initiative coordinated by
the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), whose objective is to foster
energy efficiency and improvement actions for buildings (EEB).
The laboratory brought together important stakeholders from several areas of the construction
market to identify, through dialogue and experience exchange, non-financial barriers and identify
solutions for the development of energy efficiency actions that have not been implemented in
the city of Rio de Janeiro.
