The Project/Programme Sustainability Logbook
A sustainabilty monitoring system
PPSL user sites
Enabling the life-cycle sustainability and resilience of buildings and infrastructure
A Project/Programme Sustainability Logbook (PPSL) supports the design, construction, operation and monitoring of a clearly identified built asset to help ensure that sustainability features are agreed upon by all stakeholders and pursued throughout the asset's life-cycle.
The built asset may take many forms ranging from a building or a service infrastructure facility to a group of buildings with or without infrastructure to a programme involving a collection of assets. A PPSL helps shareholders and interested parties establish and share a vision for sustainable development, and to ensure that this vision is preserved and monitored from the planning phase through construction and operation until the asset's end-of-life.
A PPSL logbook is developed and made available in the PPSL system comprising:
- Monitoring Tables in on-and off-line tools that form the basis for a logbook;
- Explanatory Notes in guidelines to help establish a common language;
- Repertoire with information sheets giving descriptions and links to relevant sustainablity frameworks;
- User Instructions to help users create and maintain a logbook;
- Guidelines providing a overview.
Source documents and resources are available for each of the PPSL components.
The PPSL system has the urban environment as a special focus since most global environmental, social and governance issues are located in cities.
