Energy efficiency plays a key role in European energy policies. It improves the security of energy supply, strengthens the competitiveness of European businesses and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions in order to achieve the EU 2020 target.
GreenBuilding is a voluntary programme which was initiated by the European Commission in 2005. The programme intends to raise awareness and trigger additional investments in energy efficiency and renewable energies among owners of non-residential buildings and to give advice and public recognition to those, who are ready to implement ambitious measures in their buildings, resulting in substantial energy savings.
