Certifications

Certifications are one of the key drivers of green building industry development and this Task Group has been functioning since the CZGBC was formed in 2009. Certifications - as a fundamental topic - permeates all other Task Groups. As part of our activities, the Group is dedicated to developing international certification systems LEED and BREEAM, national SBToolCZ and other derived systems and their adaptation to local conditions.

LEED and BREEAM are the world's most respected building sustainability certification systems, which continue to expand in the Czech market and are most commonly used to assess administrative, commercial and industrial buildings.

SBToolCZ is a national certification system that uses a similarly comprehensive set of criteria as LEED and BREEAM, but fully adapted to national conditions. It is particularly applicable to schools, administrative or residential buildings.

WELL certification and other systems for assessing the quality of internal environment in buildings are dealt with by the Task Group Healthy Internal Environment.

The members of this working group are professionals in the areas of project design, financing, property management, implementation and expertise throughout the building lifecycle.
