The “Green Seal-Green Deal” incentivizes the institutions under the municipal authority to follow green procurement, and implement energy-saving and cost-effective measures. One of these institutions – Kindergarten No. 92 was recognized as the first winner of the Green Seal-Green Deal initiative. The kindergarten serves more than 200 children and also runs the only day care center for children with special needs in the Republic of Armenia. The budget allocation for Kindergarten No.92 was almost entirely being spent on utility costs to address heat loss due to old doors and windows. Kindergarten no. 92 proposed replacing them with energy efficient and cost efficient options, earning them the Mayor’s Certificate or the Green Seal. Issuance of the “Green Seal” certificate in this format is unprecedented, innovative and was carried out for the first time in Armenia. It contributed to more accountable spending and an increased level of awareness of community organizations and institutions regarding projects aimed at energy-saving, energy-efficient and nature-based solutions.
