Green Homes going Mainstream

SMARTER Finance for Families - H2020 Project




The SMARTER Finance for Families H2020 project intends to replicate the success of the Green Homes/ Green Mortgages (GH/GM) programme initiated by the Romanian Green Building Council (RoGBC).


By the beginning of 2019, the Romanian program had signed agreements with 25 investors to build more than 6,500 housing units in Romania meeting strict green standards.


Since May 2019, Horizon 2020’s funding is supporting the programme’s expansion in 11 other countries including Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, as well as Georgia and Turkey.

How is the implementation of the project unfolding? How is this project inscribed in the context of Sustainable Finance regulation and policies? How innovation and trends in the field of energy and environmental performance of buildings are being integrated?

This webinar will address these questions with the testimony of project partners and invited experts to stimulate the conversation.


We aim to allow the sharing of experiences, to reflect on the path that has been travelled and discuss the steps to come, inspiring the participation of all relevant stakeholders.
