Financing for efficient buildings: Learning from G20 and GlobalABC

In order to realise the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the energy transition, the global building stock needs to be made zero emission, efficient and resilient. As the world adds the equivalent of the floor space of the city of Paris in new construction every week, there is an urgent challenge to bring together those who finance this large amount of new construction with the policy-makers who can enable new construction finance to evolve towards zero emissions.

Webinar: Deployment of Energy Efficient Mortgages in Europe

The European Union’s Energy Union Framework Strategy includes energy efficiency as one of its five dimensions and states it is to be considered as an energy source in its own right. The ambitious Paris climate agreement also underlines the importance of energy efficiency. To realise its full potential, public funds will not suffice and private financing will have to be unlocked on a large scale.
