For Climate Protection

The 10th Congress of IG Lebenszyklus Bau addressed the implementation of the Green Deal in the building industry.

Vienna, 20th October 2020Clear strategies and recommendations for action for the implementation of the European Green Deal were defined by high-ranking decision-makers from Austria’s building and real estate industries at this year’s congress of IG Lebenszyklus Bau. The discussion involved not only the 160 participants who gathered at the SV-Dachverband in Vienna, but also the many others who joined the live stream. ATP CEO Christoph M. Achammer – himself a founding and board member of the interest group – placed construction at the heart of his optimistic closing lecture Green Deal, Green Finance, Green Building – but HOW?

If the demands of the Green Deal have now been understood in the world of finance it is also the commercial responsibility of all those in the real estate industry to act directly,” said Achammer, as he demanded a “new, shared approach, by all and for all.”

The heart of the “Green Deal” agreed by the EU Commission is the objective of zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 as a means of opening up new opportunities for European business and society. For the building sector this means: energy and resource-saving construction and renovation. Finance represents a central lever for climate protection. For the Green Deal also raises questions about sustainable financing and “green” investment (Green Finance).
