  Annex 31 is a project established under the auspices of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Agreement on Energy Conservation in Buildings and Community Systems.
The mandate for the Annex 31 working group is to provide information on how to improve the Energy- Related Environmental Impact of Buildings. More specifically, Annex 31 has focused on how tools and assessment methods might improve the energy-related impact of buildings on interior, local and global environments.
The ultimate objective is to promote energy efficiency by increasing the use of appropriate tools by practitioners. Tools stimulate communication, make energy and environmental efficiency quantifiable and ultimately make it possible to set goals and monitor performance
Mission Statement
Through collaborative research and communications we will encourage development and application of appropriate tools and assessment methods for improving the energy-related environmental impacts of buildings.
