The Analysis of the Green Building Supporting Organisations in the Scandinavian Countries and Baltic States

Abstract

Due to increase in growth of real estate development, green certification systems are essential to ensure the well-being of society and environment. Green Building Councils are the main drivers that influence many factors related to development of green buildings, which includes certification, education, conference and other aspects. The aim of the article is to analyse the tendencies of the development of green buildings in the Scandinavian and Baltic countries by analysing the Green Building Councils of the Baltic and Scandinavian Countries, and the number of certified green buildings in both regions. The literature review, comparative analysis, document analysis, and logical access methods have been used in the research. The countries are different from each other and their current and future priorities differ from each other as well. In the research process, it is important to lay some light on the several funds acquired by the regional Green Building Councils and their usage. The research results show that all the countries are working towards the development of green buildings but some countries perform better in the number of certified green buildings. The research results, including the number of green certified buildings, future plans of Green Building Councils, recommendations for future market analysis of green buildings, have already been approbated at the 59th International Scientific Conference of Riga Technical University “SCEE 2018” (Scientific Conference on Economics and Entrepreneurship) in Riga, Latvia.

Determinants of Corruption Perception in a Transition Country: Case of Albania

Abstract

In many aspects, Albania as a transition country has several weaknesses when compared to its neighbor countries. Even though the collapse of the communist regime was reached at almost the same time with other Balkan countries, Albania still remains outside the European Union and has to face an immature government and problematic progress in several areas. Corruption is one of the most problematic issues in Albania. This research paper is based on the data collected by IDRA Research & Consulting and in the course of empirical analysis. It studies the relation between corruption and the microeconomic factors, categorized as demographic and socio-economic factors. In other words, this study aims to examine why some individuals are more willing to accept corruption than other. Based on prominent previous studies in this field, which were discussed to a relatively limited degree, this paper aims to build an empirical model for Albania that helps to explain why some individuals are more tolerant with regard to corruption. As previous studies have shown, such factors as gender, the area of living, region, experience or wrong conception are expected to be listed among the indicators that determine perception of corruption. This study takes into account the findings of literature review when setting up the regression. The results argue that factors such as the area of living, political orientation, the level of trust in institutions, personal experience with corruption, and the right conception of corruption are important factors determining the level of corruption perception.
