EcoVillage logo

The "EcoVillage. Eco-friendly cottage communities" project was implemented in 2006 as an integrated system of environmental certification of low-rise suburban cottage facilities and infrastructure design and construction.

The EcoVillage standard was developed to reflect the green requirements and take into account the world experience of "green" low-rise building design and construction.

To achieve certification, points are awarded for achieving all prerequisites and additional elements in four sections:

  1. Effect on human health
  2. Impact on the environment
  3. Comprehensive assessment of the territory
  4. Environmentally responsible building
