THE NETHERLANDS – House buyers are prepared to pay more for a house if it has a green energy label.

A survey conducted by Rotterdam's Erasmus University and Maastricht University has revealed houses with improved energy savings can fetch on average 3.4 percent more than a house with a red label, denoting high energy use.

Flats profit the most from the labelling, and those with a green label can fetch up to 4.7 percent more than those with a red label.
