European GreenBuilding


The Euro­pean Green­Build­ing cer­tifi­cate was cre­at­ed as part of the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion pro­gramme aimed at increas­ing of the lev­el of effi­cient use of ener­gy in com­mer­cial build­ings. It is a cer­tifi­cate ded­i­cat­ed to ener­gy-sav­ing non-res­i­den­tial build­ings built in the last five years or to old­er build­ings which will be mod­ern­ized.


The basic require­ment of the cer­tifi­cate is to reduce the ener­gy con­sump­tion expressed in pri­ma­ry ener­gy by 25% com­pared to nation­al stan­dards in the coun­try, where the project is com­plet­ed. This con­di­tion may be met by con­duct­ing an ener­gy audit and ener­gy sim­u­la­tion of the build­ing. An addi­tion­al require­ment of the Euro­pean Pro­gramme is the devel­op­ment of an Ener­gy Action Plan cov­er­ing the life cycle of the build­ing.
