In Vienna (Austria), there are concrete plans to revise existing regulations on new construction and renovation measures. In the future, it will be easier for building owners to obtain subsidies despite rising construction costs. According to this, PVC windows will be recently promoted in new buildings and renovations. These were previously excluded from support „for environmental reasons“.
Thanks to newer technologies and innovation, the use of PVC windows is now harmless, said Michael Ludwig, City Councillor for Housing Construction and, since May 24th, new Mayor of Vienna in an interview with a local newspaper.
