Mitigation actions

Energy Efficiency Measures in Public Buildings
Following energy audits completed by UNDP Croatia, the city has designated 10 public buildings (kindergartens, primary schools) for the national energy efficiency program and ten additional public buildings for the second phase of the same program. The public procurement process is currently underway. Project partner: Kampus d.o.o. Start year 2012

Energy-Efficient Palace of Justice
Based on the city’s passivity policy, all public buildings the city constructs must be energy efficient. The city has undertaken an ambitious construction project, its Palace of Justice, to house all municipal and regional courts. The structure is currently under construction and when finished will be certified as a low-energy public building. At least 70% lower energy consumption and 80% lower greenhouse gas emissions must be achieved in comparison with conventional constructions. Start year 2012

Second Low-Energy House Construction
The city has planned construction of a “green neighborhood” featuring seven residential blocks of flats and a number of single-family houses. The flats have been included in the national subsidized house-construction program for young and low-income families. These are the first passive houses in this part of Croatia. The first house was completed a year ago, the second constructed this year. All flats have been sold at very favorable prices, energy efficiency is excellent and project greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 63%. Start year 2011

Adaptation actions

Campus Orchard Revival
An old orchard on the university campus has undergone extensive replanting in which old and indigenous fruit trees are being reintroduced alongside an educational project that lets kindergarten children tend the orchard.

Project Orient Gate (South-East Europe Transnational Program)
Knowledge acquired from fourteen different partners in fourteen EU countries with experience collecting and analyzing climate change data, such as professional national weather and climate institutions. The aim is to gain and implement practical knowledge in several climate change adaptation pilot projects. Start year

Rainwater Recuperation Project
Previously all rainwater was transferred to the wastewater treatment plant with a resultant loss of freshwater and undue burden to the system, which used energy for treating fresh rainwater in the same way as wastewater. Now, an alternate system is being built to discharge rainwater into the stream that passes through the city, restoring vibrancy to the stream, making it more attractive and keeping its biodiversity alive. Start year 2012
