Three consecutive workshops were organised by Ministry of agriculture and environment in order to discuss about different certification methods in Europe, CESBA and especially about sustainable construction and Decree on green public procurement in Slovenia which causes a lot of confusion within SMEs and public authorities. The participants in the second workshop were different building contractors, construction supervisors and public authorities. As the content is consistent to CABEE project, Pososki razvojni center also contributed to the workshop as CABEE partner with presentation of activities in the project. Presentations on certification methods were given in the first part of the workshop, where also CESBA and CABEE project were presented. The second part was more interactive - participants discussed about strengths and weaknesses of Decree on green public procurement in Slovenia and proposed several solutions for its improvement. The building contractors and construction supervisors stressed the issue of practical problems when constructing and building, especially in understanding complex Decree and its implementation. Sustainable building is the goal for SMEs and public authorities but with certain coordination of both levels.
