CONSTRUCTION MINISTER: CROATIA MAKES ENORMOUS PROGRESS IN DOING BUSINESS REPORT

ZAGREB, Oct 28 (Hina) - Construction and Zoning Minister Anka Mrak Taritas said on Wednesday that according to the World Bank's Doing Business 2016 report, Croatia had made an enormous progress in the construction sector and that current ranking in the category "Dealing with construction permits" that is still relatively low was the result of numerous pre-investment taxes and contributions, such as water and utility contributions, which the minister said must be resolved in a different way.
 

"Croatia ranks 40th in the world and that is an exceptionally big success which we can only be proud of. When it comes to the construction sector ( "Dealing with construction permits" indicator), last year we were below the 180th place and now we are 129th, which means we moved up by 60 places. A great step was made, an enormous progress," Mrak Taritas told Hina. More information

ENERGY RENOVATION OF BUILDINGS

Significant financial savings are achieved by energy renovation of buildings, that is, by increase in energy efficiency. Energy audit implementation is the first step in the energy renovation of buildings.

Energy-efficient houses provide a higher standard of living, while by renovation based on principles of energy efficiency savings on overhead expenses from 30 to 60 percent can be achieved. Eventually, reduction of energy consumption, especially of fossil fuels, leads to a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, which means less environmental pollution, and thus a better protection of public health.

Additional information on energy efficiency in buildings can be obtained, every working day between 09.00 and 15.00, at the free info line 0800 232 333.
