Romania Green Building Council, in partnership with DAS Engineering Group and Cluj-Napoca Town hall, invited the IT&C companies from Cluj to a conference on the subject of financial incentives for highly energy efficient green buildings.

The conference was opened by the representative of Cluj Napoca local authorities, Ms. Emilia Botezean, who welcomed the guests with and introductory speech. Following this, Steven Borncamp, president of Romania Green Building Council, granted the Cluj Napoca local authorities with the Award for the Governmental Initiative of the Year 2012, earned through by implementing the tax reduction on buildings in order to reward energy efficiency and green performance. Cluj-Napoca is the first city in Romania to adopt this policy, opening the path for other local public authorities that we hope will follow this success example.

After the award, Mr. Borncamp presented a brief overview of the green building trend and industry capability in Romania. Thus, Romania’s accession to the European Union and resultant legislative changes has increased the strategic outlook on high quality, sustainable construction. Local companies are improving their capability while leading international companies have entered the Romanian market bringing an increased level of professionalism, and implicitly, the requests on the market. From a green building perspective, there is a significant increase in awareness of the Romanian business community on the issue of sustainability and energy efficiency. Adding to the above the opportunity to grow in the underdeveloped field of green building in Romania, we can say that the market is highly favourable to sustainable project initiatives.

Further on, Mr. Dorin Beu, lecturer at the Technical University of Cluj Napoca, presented the financial incentives for green buildings, followed by  Alexandra Stoica’ s presentation, representing DAS Engineering,  regarding the steps required to achieve a sufficient level of green building performance to qualify for the tax discount.
