In the case of mortgages, Czech banking houses will assess how environmentally friendly is a house or apartment acquired. Hospodářské noviny writes about it, stating that if the property meets environmental requirements, the applicant could obtain a cheaper loan. This trend of so-called green banking is already evident in industrial halls or warehouses. In the middle of the year, Komerční banka will likely offer a green mortgage. Raiffeisenbank and Moneta Money Bank, for example, are also preparing preferential financing for sustainable housing and green projects. ČSOB already provides green loans.
