The main goal of the “Business for Climate” high-level business breakfast is to discuss the COP21 climate summit commitments and their impact on business. During the event there will be a presentation of data reflecting energy expenditure in certified and non-certified buildings on the Polish market. The project is a continuation of a report “Analysis of the sustainable construction market in Poland” initiated by Construction Marketing Group (CMG) and has been supported by the EEB Platform Poland and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

“We’ve managed to collect data on energy consumption of nearly 50 office buildings. No one had ever done such research. The results have given us material to discuss whether and how the solutions implemented by the rules of building certifications affect the consumption of media. We have made a preliminary assessment which we are ready to share. It would be very useful to continue doing such research in the future, if only because each year new certified buildings are delivered to the market”, said Robert Włodarczyk, Technical Quality Manager from the Real Estate Management Services Department, Colliers International.

The high-level business breakfast “Business for Climate” is organised in cooperation with the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) which is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. The EUSEW is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in close cooperation with the Directorate General for Energy.
