Climate change is one of the most important issues facing our world today and represents one of the biggest challenges that we’ve ever had to face. One of the largest emitters of pollution is residential properties, making up almost 40% of Europe's emissions. Solving this issue is obviously a major step in the fight against climate change. However, retrofitting old energy inefficient housing is expensive. Public finance will not be enough, private finance is desperately needed.
Key learning objectives:
Identify how residential properties are contributing to climate change
Comprehend why there is a need for energy-efficient mortgages (EEMs)
