The Czech Green Building Council (CZGBC) brings together companies from various sectors of the economy. Their common interest is high-quality buildings that support new construction and renovation based on sustainability principles. The Czech Green Building Council was founded in 2009 and all its activities are aimed at meeting the “Vision Zero” objectives - a state where buildings have zero 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.
Green buildings will become standard in the Czech Republic. They will enable higher productivity, a healthy and comfortable environment for their users, and will not consume more energy than they themselves produce.
The green building is energy efficient, has a high-quality internal environment, saves water, uses circular economy principles and sustainable materials. Positively affects the environment.
Green buildings have long-term economic benefits for their owners throughout their whole life cycle, while creating a healthy and comfortable internal environment for their users.
The Chance for Buildings Alliance was established by the Council together with the Passive House Center in 2010 with the aim of creating a favorable legislative and economic framework that will ensure that buildings in the Czech Republic are sustainable, ie energy efficient, adapted to climate change and environmentally friendly.In the preparation of legislation, standards or support programs, Chance for Buildings provides institutions with the expertise of a broad membership base of over 300 companies from the construction industry.
