Housing 2030 Keynote address by Franz Timmermans, EVP for the EU Green deal
CLIMATE CHANGE, ENVIRONMENTAL & HEALTH IMPACTS ON HOUSING AFFORDABILITY
#Housing2030 digital conference | 10 November 2020
Climate change is the key issue facing us all. At the same time, millions of people in the UNECE region suffer from energy poverty, while households and the construction industry remain significant sources of CO2 emissions. Thus, housing goes right to the heart of the climate question.
This online conference, part of the #Housing2030 initiative led by Housing Europe, the UNECE and UN-Habitat, was presented in partnership with the City of Glasgow. It aimed to highlight effective and innovative policies to improve the climate and energy performance of our homes in a way that does not put an unsustainable financial burden on low- and middle-income households.
