Environmental Centre and Green Building standards in RUSSIA
In the wake of the UN World Summit on Sustainable Development the World’s major countries established the World Green Building Council (World GBC) in 2002.
This international organization united over 70 national councils that transform the international construction market by introducing environmental assessment systems, educational programs, and by lending support to green building.
As of now the World market has a large number of green building standards with LEED, BREEAM and DGNB at the lead.
