Housing Europe presents the contribution of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing providers to mitigate climate change.
On the day that COP21 kicks off in Paris, Housing Europe is organising in collaboration with BUILD UP a webinar to present the contribution of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing providers to mitigate climate change.
The webinar, addressing policy makers, housing associations’ managers as well as representatives of various interlinked sectors, will be the occasion to follow-up the Housing Europe’s “Copenhagen Offer” by assessing the work done over the last five years in terms of dwellings refurbished, energy saved as well as a series of other measurable outcomes.
What was the average refurbishment rate of Public, Cooperative and Social Housing providers in Europe? How much money was invested since Copenhagen and what was the benefit for tenants and the impact on the economy? The analysis of the figures resulting from the POWER HOUSE nZEC project helped Housing Europe to give an answer to these and other questions.
Following-up the work already done, the second section will focus on the needs of our sector, stressing the key importance of empowering and involving citizen-consumers and communities to unlock the full potential of the fair green energy transition under way.
