In the context of:

  • the need for Member States to draft and submit their new National Energy Efficiency Action Plans to the European Commission by 30 of June 2011

The RoGBC organized on the 12th of May 2011 a half day workshop to discuss existing financial measures for supporting sustainability in construction (with a focus on energy efficiency in buildings, from the private sector perspective).  The discussions were also organized around new financial mechanisms that could be considered.  Participants at the event included representatives from the banking sector, investors and real estate developers, academia, public authorities and providers of materials and solutions for buildings.  The discussions were organized in two working group:  A). Existing financial measures and B) New mechanisms that could be considered

The results of this feedback are structured in the following report as follows:

  • Financial Mechanisms for encouraging energy efficiency in buildings in Romania – includes the conclusions of the workshop RoGBC organized on the 12th of May
  •   Annex 1 with more information on the Green Mortgage financial mechanism proposed and developed by RoGBC
  •   Annex 2 includes a review of the existing financial instruments implemented in different countries in Europe. The material was created by the World GBC Europe Network based on the information gathered from the Green Building Councils active in Europe including Romania.

The documents were submitted to the representatives of relevant public institutions: Ministry of Economy, Commerce and Business Environment, Ministry of  Regional Development and Tourism, Ministry of Environement and Forestry, National Bank of Romania, Commission of Public Administration and Environment from the Chamber of Deputies from the Romanian Parliament.
