SPCleantech organized on 26.06.2017 together with the Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC) workshop for architects and developers “Green buildings – fashion or necessity? Should you certify buildings?”. Workshop took place at the head quarters of SPCleantech, NordicHouse, ul. św. Anny 5 in Kraków.

Due to the growing popularity of multicriteria certification and the observed increase in the number of certificates granted in Poland, one can ask yourself whether it is a transitional fashion or a necessity resulting from market needs? We tried to answer these questions during subsequent workshop for architects and developers.
