All buildings awarded with the AGPB Award and the AGPB Technology Award in 2023 were presented on 19 September together with their "Viennese colleagues" awarded by klimaaktiv and ÖGNB at the event "Darauf bauen wir: Sanierung und klimafitte Gebäude für die Zukunft!" The Austrian companies involved received their certificates in the presence of Federal Minister of Climate Action Leonore Gewessler, City Councillor Jürgen Czernohorsky and embassy representatives from Germany, Sweden and Great Britain.
Once again, we congratulate all the award winners!
And we are already looking forward to new buildings: AGPB awards the know-how of Austrian companies applied worldwide: This is how sustainable building "Made in Austria" works!

Invitation to the building conference "That's what we're building on: Renovation and climate-fit buildings for the future" and to the awarding of showcase projects in the building sector.
How does sustainable stock development and renovation of our buildings work? How do we get from the lowest energy building to the net zero building? How do we use instruments such as taxonomy, portfolio development or renovation roadmap? These and many other challenges, possible solutions as well as awards for implemented showcase projects in the building sector are the focus of the event "This is what we build on: Renovation and climate-fit buildings for the future".
After workshops and the discussion round with Federal Minister Leonore Gewessler, the Vienna City Councillor for Climate Jürgen Czernohorszky and other guests, showcase projects will be presented and awarded.

Austrian Green Planet Building (AGPB) stands for high-quality standards for sustainable construction: Energy efficiency and renewable energy supply are the key factors for a CO2-neutral building sector and are therefore the focus of Austrian Green Planet Building.
In Austria, more than 1.500 buildings have already been constructed under consideration of the quality criterias of klimaaktiv, the Austrian initiative for climate protection. Austrian Green Planet Building spreads this know-how worldwide under the joint umbrella brand of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) and ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.
The AUSTRIAN GREEN PLANET BUILDING AWARD supports Austrian architects, building consultants, construction companies and technology enterprises by promoting their outstanding buildings for climate protection abroad.
