Agenzia CasaClima is an instrumental agency in the Autonomous Province of Bolzano. The purpose of its founding was to execute mandatory energy certifications of the buildings in Alto Adige and now operates throughout the rest of Italy. Agenzia CasaClima offers vast formative contributions for all players in the construction industry. The agency organizes and promotes multiple initiatives, raising awareness in the energy efficiency, sustainability and construction quality sectors and in climate protection.
