The MOU acknowledges that both parties:
- share a common interest in the promotion of green building technologies
- recognise that green buildings provide a more healthy, comfortable and productive environment and provide a tangible example of sustainable design
- are working with the common languages of the LEED Protocol
“We are delighted to have signed this agreement with GBC Italia, says Dr Craig Wheatley, Director IES. “Our organisations have very similar outlooks and objectives in terms of sustainable building design and our joint initiatives with GBC Italia can only strengthen the promotion of green building technologies in Italy and the rest of Europe.”
