Building market acceptance and recognition of ETV as a scheme for construction sector innovation in Slovenia

In the pursuit of advancing sustainability in the construction sector, this Slovenian roadmap charts a strategic course for the integration of Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) into the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), and the EU taxonomy.

Focused on the dynamic intersection of environmental technology and corporate sustainability, the roadmap targets the construction industry—acknowledged as a pivotal player in the circular economy and a significant contributor to carbon emissions.

The roadmap underscores the imperative for ETV to play a pivotal role in verifying the environmental impact of technologies, especially as construction companies gear up for compliance with the CSRD. Through a thorough analysis of legal documents and extensive stakeholder consultations, the roadmap outlines strategic goals, stakeholder engagement strategies, and a set of actions to position the ETV system within the national sustainability financing and reporting ecosystem.
