I just returned from a meeting in Warsaw organized by David Lawrence of AIG Lincoln and the BRE Global team to discuss the status of green building in the region and to hear about the pre-launch of the BREEAM standard for Europe. AIG Lincoln is using the BREEAM standard for their CEE building projects. (Watch a presentation where David describes AIG Lincoln’s green projects)

As mentioned in our earlier discussions, the RoGBC is gathering data on green building rating schemes and will begin to form a review committee in September to study the selection of a certification scheme. We are currently supporting both LEED and BREEAM projects in Romania and will continue to do so for the duration of these projects.

Our RoGBC training curriculum is being designed to maximize scores for both the mandatory and voluntary schemes including the Energy Performance for Buildings Directive (EPBD), BREEAM, LEED, and uncertified efforts that incorporate green building principles.

We also recognize the importance of building a regional marketplace for green building products and services to make the training relevant for various certifications if your business crosses borders.

Our team will keep gathering data and keep you informed of our work effort. Please also be sure to send us your feedback as well.
