He learned about LEED certification during a course in sustainable construction at Harvard University and became passionate about the transformative power of green building certification.

Always looking at the latest evolutions in the field of green buildings, Emmanuel got to know the Living Building Challenge certification developed by the International Living Future Institute based in Seattle, USA. As a believer in restorative solutions for our built environment, he co-founded the Spain Living Building Collaborative in 2016 and he is now involved as a co-founder of the International Living Future Institute Europe which will be launched in 2018.

Recently Emmanuel became a Living Future Accredited Professional which acknowledges him as someone with a holistic framing of sustainability and the understanding needed to help lead a transformation toward communities that are socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative.
“The online courses give the opportunity to learn when it best suits you, in the morning, after work or even late in the evening.
Online learning is the best way to improve knowledge for very busy persons. The courses provided all the necessary details about LEED and many attachments and links to collaborating organizations."
“Emmanuel was always eager to help with our problems and clarified all the questions given. This is the level of personalization that sets this online course apart from any other.
The course had a good overview of the theoretical knowledge and gave us the opportunity to understand how a real-life certification works. The course gave us the chance to meet, communicate, and collaborate with other fellow participants, which was the great experience."
