Fighting climate change by renovating homes in BelgiumThursday, 08 February 2018 16:36
The project with a total budget of €13.9 million is expected to put Belgium on the path to renovating its existing housing stock, mobilising more than €700 million of complementary funding from other EU programmes and national sources.
The long-term objective of the project is to influence the low-emission strategies of all cities and communities in Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels-Capital Region. In the long run, the goal of the strategies is to renovate all existing housing, achieving a reduction of 75-80% of CO2 emissions and energy use by 2050.
The project was announced today by the European Commission as part of an investment package of 10 projects to support EU Member States towards a low-carbon and circular economy. The package is co-funded under the LIFE programme, EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate change.
