Gonzalo Sánchez

Senior Associate, Spain


About me

Gonzalo is a senior associate working on the buildings sector in Spain. His main role is to support Spanish organisations in decarbonising the built environment and other environmental challenges as part of the implementation of the ECF strategy for Spain.

Before joining the ECF, Gonzalo worked in civil society organisations and for the public and private sectors. He was an advisor for public administrations in international development programs at the GIZ, set up a sustainable urban consultancy in Spain and advocated for decarbonising the construction sector at the EU level as part of the European Environmental Bureau.

Gonzalo is an architect and urban planner from Polytechnic University of Madrid, and holds a Master’s degree in Territorial and Urban Planning and a postgraduate diploma in International Development. Thanks to his work in several countries, such as Mozambique, Argentina, Ethiopia and Belgium, he understands the built environment as the result of our social challenges and as a frame to discuss how we want to relate to each other. He believes that the ecological transition entails both cultural and physical transformations.

He loves music, playing in his jazz band and reading a good book in natural places without construction.
