The Green and Socially just transition to net-zero homes in Europe - Getting the path right
9 December 2021 (Thursday) 12.30-13.30 CET | OnlineOnline, 9 December 2021Save the date
Many social housing providers across Europe are leading a fair energy transition by example, demonstrating ways that the delivery of climate proof, resilient, affordable homes to all does not need to be a utopia.
The only way to reduce CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030 and live in a carbon-neutral continent by 2050 is to adapt to different contexts and starting points. We will combine the know-how of all four corners of the EU – Germany, Spain, Estonia, the Netherlands, and Denmark - to ensure that crucial regulatory decisions, such as the ‘Fit for 55’ package, set the right path to decarbonisation.
During this one-hour online session on 9th December, Housing Europe experts and respected economists will chart the way forward together with the European Commission to ensure that the regulatory and financial environment in which the sector will operate in the next decades will be able to empower all parts of society.
