Renovation – Landscape of climate finance in the Polish buildings sector
In the coming years, Poland will gain access to unprecedented funds for thermal modernization of buildings. Limited monitoring of financial flows in the area of buildings renovation creates a risk of only partial and inefficient use of this opportunity. This report by WiseEuropa, NewClimate Institute and I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics analyses the available data on financing of low-carbon investments in order to better understand the processes taking place in the Polish buildings sector in recent years and to correctly define future challenges and opportunities for the policy makers, public and private sectors, and financial institutions.
The report emphasizes that buildings renovation does not only play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but it can also be a stimulus for the recovery of the European economy after the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
