A virtual launch of PCAF's latest project, “Financing towards net-zero buildings” funded by the Laudes Foundation. This project addresses the urgent need for the financial industry to accelerate the transition of European buildings towards net zero by 2050.
Attendees learned about the required transformation of the European building stock by 2050 and the crucial role of financial institutions in enabling the needed long-term structural change. Moreover, industry representatives discussed the opportunities of this transition and the need for the financial industry to act as an accelerator. Attendees also got an overview of how financial institutions can measure and track the climate impact of their mortgage and real estate portfolios towards net zero.
