President, Eurovent Certita Certification
Today, professionals face new challenges in complying with the objectives of carbon footprint reduction and addressing the constraints of building code regulations that require precise calculations based on performance data.
In addition, with the rising costs of energy and the growing demand for cooling in buildings, supermarkets, or data centers, monitoring energy consumption is becoming key to reduce both the financial and environmental impact.
In this challenging and fast-moving context, reliable product performance has become a main driver for business decisions and product investments. When it comes to reducing the energy bill, third-party certification offers a real value.
Trusted as a highly skilled and experienced partner, Eurovent Certita Certification has positioned itself as the number one Third-Party certification provider in Europe in the field of Indoor Climate, Ventilation and Air Quality, Process Cooling & Food Cold Chain.

Consultants, buyers and contractors benefit from a fair and competitive market, supporting the dimensioning of energy efficient projects
Commercial buildings consume 40% of all electrical energy; with the introduction of the Energy Performance Building Directive (EPBD) in Europe, reducing energy consumption is one of the challenges consultants and contractors have to face. Dimensioning projects that assess the energy consumption of buildings and highlight its true cost quickly illustrate the power and value of certified data.
The purpose of Eurovent Certita Certification is to create common set of criteria for rating products, that apply to all manufacturers, thus increasing the integrity and accuracy of data while ensuring the needed level of transparency to guarantee a fair and competitive comparison. With over 95,000 models certified, our database provides professionals with all the information needed to dimension equipment and match the technical constraints of the specifications with the financial target of the project.
