Best practise example Building Regulation of the Municipality of Carugate
Example Abstract The New Building Regulation of the Municipality of Carugate (Province of Milano) represents the most innovative example at national level to address the administration towards sustainability. The document grants a prominent role to the environmental aspects linked to building. The main innovation is that this instrument foresees a long list of actions that for the first time in Italy become compulsory: these are mostly related to energy saving and the use of renewable energy. All the steps to reach this important result have been carried out by following an Agenda 21 procedure.
