The Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC) Green Building Symposium is known for green progress in Polish property industry, and an energetic platform for ideas, collaboration, partnership and learning. It is where the principles and passions of the green building community are galvanised and grow.
During the plenary and parallel sessions of this year´s PLGBC Green Building Symposium edition (5th October 2017, Reduta Banku Polskiego, Warsaw, Poland) discovering new green building trends, debunking myths regarding green building, and discussing various approaches to the sustainable design and green building financing will all be topics.
In today’s dynamic world should we follow global megatrends and recommendations of breakthrough research or rather constantly refer to well-established schemes? Maybe the two approaches should be combined? Can we find alternative ways of thinking which perhaps will help us to avoid making the same mistakes over again.
Prof. Charles Kibert, Ph.D. Marcin Popkiewicz, Ross Shuster and Foster+Partners’ representative will try to find answers to the above questions.
Green Bulding Financing Session
Green buildings have a substantial and cost-effective potential to deliver net cost savings, important social and economic gains and mitigate GHG emissions. These benefits can be delivered by developing markets, sustained with mature and effective financing channels and supportive government policies.
EBRD is addressing these challenges and opportunities through its Green Economy Transition (GET) approach for “Green Buildings” investments, which is summarized in a series of reports published alongside the symposium for audience members interested in working with EBRD.
