Through its comprehensive activities and support services for Austrian companies, universities and research organisations, the BMVIT contributes significantly to the international positioning of Austria in the international research community.
Furthermore, the BMK, with its comprehensive environmental policy competencies at federal level, is responsible for the ongoing development and implementation of the national climate and energy strategy. The national climate protection initiative klimaaktiv sees itself as a cross-sector implementation program in which numerous initiatives for preventive climate protection are carried out. klimaaktiv provides a national building standard for energy-efficient and climate-friendly construction which is the core basis for the quality requirements of AUSTRIAN GREEN PLANET BUILDING. By now, well over 1.500 buildings of all utilisation categories were planned, constructed or renovated by the klimaaktiv standard.
