On 3 July 2018, at the Ministry of Investment and Development, we signed the Accessibility Partnership, the aim of which is to cooperate within the Accessibility Plus Programme. The declaration was also signed by the National Association for Sustainable Building Support, of which Go4Energy is a co-founder.
The main idea of the partnership is to create a platform for the exchange of substantive knowledge between entities, associations, companies, organisations operating in the field of broadly understood accessibility. The signing of the agreement is an official confirmation that Go4Energy will be guided by the idea of accessibility, influencing the environment through services provided for the real estate and construction industries.
– As a socially responsible company and involved in various types of initiatives, we are happy to support the Accessibility Plus programme. It seems particularly valuable to have the opportunity to use the experience related to the certification of buildings in this slightly broader concept of sustainable development, including their accessibility. The values we follow in our daily work and the development goals we set ourselves are fully in line with the programme. We treat the signing of the declaration as a motivation to expand our activities to include services for the reduction of architectural barriers of new buildings. – Introduced by Piotr Bartkiewicz, Managing Partner of Go4Energy and member of the board of the National Association for Sustainable Building Support.
