The new RTS environmental classification system is designed for parties who are commissioning construction projects and who want to build in an environmentally responsible manner.
The set of criteria used in the RTS environmental classification is applicable to new construction and comprehensive renovation projects, as well as to changes of usage. The set of criteria and the required verification documents can be used to steer projects of different sizes and types, such as school and nursery buildings, residential buildings, office and commercial buildings, and accommodation buildings.
Taking sustainable development and efficiency into consideration during construction is valued by residents, property developers, and owners, as well as societal decision-makers. Making better use of natural resources and realising lower property usage costs incentivises investments in environmental factors when buildings are designed.
