Green Homes Certification  
Location : Webinar
From: Thursday 09 September 2021, 10:00
To: Thursday 09 September 2021, 17:00

The Romania Green Building Council has developed a low-cost but comprehensive Green Homes certification to assess and recognize the top-performing residential projects utilizing sustainable construction principles. Financial and technical modeling have proven that investing in sensible measures for energy efficiency and other green building attributes for homes will improve housing quality, reduce the total monthly cost of ownership for the homeowner, allow for higher sales prices for the project developer/investor, and substantially reduce the financial risk for the bank offering the mortgage on the home.

Over fifty residential projects representing over 10,000 residential units, with a combined market value of approximately 2 billion euros, have been certified or in-process to obtain the certification across Romania. Download here the RoGBC Green Homes & Green Mortgages Toolkit for Residential Investors.
