Green Building Council

Introduction

The Czech Green Building Council (CZGBC) brings together companies from various sectors of the economy and its members represent the whole value chain of the sustainable building sector.   The Czech Green Building Council was founded in 2009 and all its activities are aimed at meeting the “Vision Zero” objectives - that buildings have zero negative impact on environment throughout their whole life cycle. We encourage the market to transform the way people design, build, maintain and operate the buildings and urban areas. We strive to create a healthy, prosperous and environmentally and socially friendly urban environment that improves the quality of life. Our mission is that sustainable building  will become standard in the Czech Republic. The construction process will efficiently use all resources, including renewable or recycled materials without producing landfill waste and will not consume more energy than they themselves produce. Green buildings will enable higher productivity, provide a healthy and comfortable environment for their users.
