Former president of the Green Building Council of Croatia Vedrana Likan, Director of Colliers International Ltd., and the initiator of the Green Building Council of Croatia, has declared: "The Green Building Council of Croatia in many ways marked the development of the green economy in Croatia and positioned many institutions, businesses and organizations as socially responsible through the context of their commitment to green building. Unlike in 2009, when we started working, today the concept of green building in general is recognized. Our educational programs have generated many experts who are now recognized from the national and international communities. Our collaboration with the President and the Government office, representatives of the international community’s in Croatia, professional chambers, government agencies, University’s, the media, and most of all the active economic entities, help in positioning the Croatia Green Building Council as an institution that has become and remains recognized by the European Council Network and the World Green Building Council as a synonym for propulsive, ambitious and successful national council. " 

Hrvoje Kvasnička, the new President of the Council, addressed the assembly, saying he will continue with the strategy of further development of the Council as a respectable institution in the field of green building as the former presidents Gero and Likan were doing, and pointed out that the focus of his presidency of the Council will be in training and dissemination of knowledge about green building through professional public. Also, Kvasnička said: "The experts and the general public in the area of Zagreb and surroundings are extremely familiar with the idea of green building and the implementation of international standards for green building in the housing market, now we are facing the spread of these ideas in all areas of Croatia as well as giving support to regional Green Building Councils, which the World Green Building Council already recognized as an active and very valuable activity of Croatia Green Building Council. At the same time, further support to all members of the Council and intensive cooperation with them is also one of my priorities as president of the Croatia Green Building Council."
