We are calling all innovative companies to unlock the investment potential for resilient low-carbon building stock!
WWF is striving for change that ensures that basically every real estate investment from now on would be ‘future-proof’.
At present, the energy efficiency investments are not happening at the pace and scale needed. The different players of the real estate sector must step up to overcome the challenge. The institutional investors and real estate companies must go way beyond the business-as-usual level of energy efficiency improvements guided by the existing legislation. First and foremost, we need to ask what is adequate in light of the pressing urgency informed by climate science.
WWF’s LIFE EconomisE project demonstrates how influencing financial flows for the decarbonisation of building stock can deliver significant contributions towards 2020 and 2030 Climate and Energy targets, with special emphasis placed on working within the Paris Agreement’s temperature goals of 1.5/2°C. We also need new partners and clever solutions!
The objective is to influence the uptake of energy efficiency measures and to bring about a shift towards low-carbon investment, explicitly focused on decarbonisation of buildings and improved climate resilience. We cannot afford missed opportunities – therefore strong collaboration and partnerships with forward-thinking organisations, big or small, is greatly needed.
