Last week, CPIPG signed up to the NEW GREEN DEAL declaration. Drawn up by the Czech Green Buildings Council (CZGBC), it is aimed at the Czech government to support a revival of the country’s economy in general and the building sector in particular. Proposals that CPIPG finds especially worthy of support include a focus on brownfield development, the utilisation of local alternative energy sources, increased funds allocation for subsidy programmes supporting energy efficiency and a reduction of the VAT rate applicable to energy-efficient solutions.
The Czech Green Building Council brings together companies from various sectors of the economy. Their common interest is high-quality buildings that support new construction and renovation based on sustainability principles. The Czech Green Building Council was founded in 2009 and all its activities are aimed at meeting the "Vision Zero" objectives – a state where buildings have zero impact on the environment throughout their whole life cycle.
