Croatia GBC Holds Sixth Better Building Brunch

Tuesday 08th April 2014

The Croatia Green Building Council (HSZG), in collaboration with the British Embassy in Croatia, recently held its sixth Better Building Brunch.  The event, on 30 January 2014, had the theme, “Green Economy in the UK.”

A keynote speech was given by HSZG’s Vice President, Mark Gero, and dignitaries were then addressed by HE Mr David Slinn (pictured), the United Kingdom’s Ambassador to Croatia.

Mr Slinn introduced changes that have been made in the UK towards sustainability, and talked about the importance of green building in relation to other green sectors (e.g. green transport, green agriculture, etc.).  His address also covered ways in which the UK motivates the uptake of green building, including an in depth look at the UK’s “Green Deal” programme.

Mark Gero and HSZG’s Executive Director, Ms Snježana Turalija, highlighted the contribution of the Croatian Green Building Council and its more than 100 members from economical and institutional sectors in promoting the concept of green building to both trades and the public in Croatia. Thousands of architects, engineering and construction professionals, financial and real estate experts, investors and manufacturers have participated in educational and promotional campaigns to promote the values that green building ensures.

The event was kindly sponsored by Alukeonigstahl Ltd, a long-term member of HSZG.
