The programme on a low-carbon built environment offered a total of EUR 40 million in funding in 2021–2023 to support Finnish companies and other organisations in developing low-carbon solutions related to the built environment. The aim was also to promote adaptation to climate change.
The aim has been to boost the development and dissemination of products, technologies, services and practices for the built environment that mitigate climate change, promote the renewal of economic structures and enhance the competitiveness of Finnish companies based on sustainable solutions.
Besides funding, the Low-carbon Built Environment Programme provides a platform for developing broad-based cooperation between operators in the sector and for sharing best lessons learned.
The programme is implemented by the Ministry of the Environment and Business Finland. KIRAHub operates as the programme manager. All 8 funding application rounds of the program have closed and in the future the program will focus on communicating the results of the projects. From the programme we have funded 100+ projects, involving over 400 organisations in 10 different themes.
