Cities belong to their citizens; comprising an economic, social and cultural asset for which all are responsible of taking care of in order to assure the future of the following generations. Considering this premise, cities are the most important growth pole of the European Union, while more than two thirds of the European population lives in urban areas and this share continues to grow. Due to their high density, cities offer a huge potential for improving sustainability towards a carbon-neutral new concept of life.

Poland is the biggest beneficiary of EU funds under the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), receiving up to around €80 billion from the Cohesion Policy budget. Only 2.8% of this funding is dedicated to energy efficiency in buildings. At the same time, low energy performance of existing buildings (especially single-family houses) and use of old coal fired boilers causes significant air pollution. Poland has some of the worst air quality in Europe, with 33 of the continent’s 50 most polluted cities, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report.
