There are a number of motives for a “green building”, including environmental, economic, and social benefits. However, modern sustainability initiatives call for an integrated and synergistic design to both new construction and in the retrofitting of existing structures
There is an enormous potential for improvements when it comes to CO2 emissions, the consumption of primary resources and energies, and the waste material produced.
It is not just the ecological aspects that matter, but also the investment of resources and capital needed to achieve an optimal, long-term quality of use of the building.
A building with certified sustainability offers numerous benefits:
• higher predictability and better structural quality,

• improved marketing opportunities – thanks to increased comfort and lower costs for users – lower vacancy rates, higher market value
• an image boost for owners and users: sustainable construction as part of the corporate strategy
