In 2005 the European Commission launched the GreenBuilding Programme (GBP). GreenBuilding is a voluntary programme aiming at improving the energy efficiency of non-residential buildings in Europe on voluntary basis. The programme addresses owners of non-residential buildings to realise cost-effective measures which enhance the energy efficiency of their buildings in one or more technical services. The programme covers both existing and new buildings.
In a number of participating countries, a so called GreenBuilding National Contact Point (NCP) is established for aiding organisations who consider participation in GreenBuilding (see the NCPs). In countries where no NCP is established, the Joint Research Centre assists the potential participant.
The GreenBuilding Programme is managed by the Joint Research Centre. For more information contact us.
